No-cook dolphin bananas

Snack times are essential to keeping our little ones well fuelled during the day. Eating up to 5-6 times per day is very normal for active and growing little kids. It keeps their tummy satisfied, their mood happy and their concentration and energy levels just right – if it’s the right type of snack of course. These no-cook dolphin bananas are a great little snack, and will bring a smile to their sweet little face.

Nutrition Note: It’s play with a purpose – this fun fresh food snack is sure to entice kids who are fussy with fruit.

Note: whole grapes can pose a choking risk. Always supervise children when eating grapes.

  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup grapes


Step 1

Use a sharp knife to cut the banana in half. Then cut through the middle of the banana stem right to the banana flesh. Continue to cut a small ‘smile’ in the corner. -

Step 2

Open the banana stem and place a grape in the ‘mouth’. Place the banana dolphin upright in a container and surround it with the leftover banana – chopped and ½ cup of grapes.

Step 3

Tip: brush some lemon juice over cut fruit to stop it from browning.  -
