Fruity Footballs - A Winning Snack Recipe


Ingredients:

  • 1 medium-sized banana 🍌

  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter or a nut butter alternative 🥜

  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes 🥥

  • 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips or raisins 🍫🍇

  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped strawberries or grapes 🍓🍇

  • Pretzel sticks for decoration (optional) 🥨


Instructions:

  • Peel the banana and cut it into bite-sized rounds. These will be the "footballs."

  • Spread a small amount of peanut butter on each banana round. This will help the coconut flakes stick.

  • Roll the peanut butter-covered banana rounds in the unsweetened coconut flakes. These will resemble footballs with their "coconut fuzz."

  • Using the chocolate chips or raisins, create the soccer ball pattern. Arrange them in a pentagon and hexagon shape, just like a classic football.

  • For added flair, you can stick pretzel sticks into the banana rounds as football "handles." This is optional but adds a fun touch!


Why This Snack is a Winner:


This snack packs a punch in terms of nutrition. Bananas provide a quick energy boost with natural sugars, while peanut butter offers protein to sustain energy levels during practice. The coconut flakes add healthy fats, and the strawberries or grapes contribute essential vitamins and antioxidants. Plus, the fun football design makes it appealing to even the pickiest eaters!


Let's Fuel Future Stars!


WeeKicks is all about nurturing young athletes, and a healthy diet is a key part of that journey. This fruity football snack not only keeps your preschooler energised for practice but also makes nutrition fun and exciting.


Remember, it's not just about the game; it's about creating healthy habits that will benefit your child on and off the field.
