Fun Healthy Snack for Kids: Bananaflies


Getting creative with making fun healthy snacks for my kids has always been one of my favorite parts of being a mom. I love seeing my kids get excited about eating healthy, and sometimes I have to get extremely creative with my ultra-picky eater, Tyler.

When Tyler came home from school this week, I said, “Tyler look up in the sky…it’s a bird.. it’s a plane…no…it’s a Bananafly.” He immediately dropped to the ground in laughter when he saw me flying banana/butterfly over his head. We then sat down together and made more for his brother and sister while talking about his day.


Bananaflies are super easy to make, and only require a few ingredients.


What will you need?

  • Fresh bananas (not too ripe)
  • pretzels
  • chocolate (or carob) chips

How do you make them?


carefully put a pretzel on each side of the banana


break apart a pretzel and put two tentacles on top


add the chips for eyes and enjoy!
