Here’s a start to Hulali’s creative snacks made by her own little hands and quoted precisely in her own words.
Banana Honey Toast
1. First cut the banana.
The only step I had to help her with was opening the honey jar and scooping out a little of honey into a cup. We’ve had talks about preventing contamination to whole jars of honey, peanut butter, jam, mayonnaise, pickles, etc. It’s a little like the double dip no-no at potlucks. We try to have them use one utensil for each spread. Also, the last thing we want is a whole jar of spread being contaminated by a licked spoon. 😛
Sometimes it takes a lot of time to teach young children how to prepare their own snacks. Things are spilt, they end up over serving themselves so food is wasted, or things are not put away and the clean-up step is overlooked. However, these are all teachable moments and great opportunities to talk to my children and see also where I need to improve as a parent.
