Kid-Friendly Banana Caterpillars
Looking for a fun way to get your kids in the kitchen? They will love helping you make these easy banana caterpillars. All you need are 5 simple ingredients and 5 minutes!
How cute are these little banana caterpillars? The girls love helping me spread the bananas with Greek yogurt and roll them in fruity cereal. It is such a fun and silly way to get your kids cooking in the kitchen! Who says you can’t play with your food?
You can use any kind of colored cereal you prefer. I try to find ones that are void of artificial colors when possible. Make sure to read the label. If you don’t have time to go all out on the caterpillar, skip the legs and head, slice the coated banana into 1/2-inch rounds and call it sushi! So many options–so little effort!
