Enjoy your Easy Banana Pops!

Eat these tasty pops all year. You can dip the bananas in almost anything that sounds good. Let your imagination run wild. Encourage your kids to help you invent a new kind of pop, a s’mores pop, perhaps, with rolled oats instead of graham cracker crumbs. Try replacing the bananas with other fruits, apples and strawberries, maybe? By using healthy ingredients to make fun snacks, your kids will learn to value healthy eating habits, and will be more likely to choose the healthier options in the future.
