Nutella & Banana Sushi Snack

By: Symone Grady

Want a fun and healthy snack you can make with your preschooler?  This is a great one!

Cooking can be a pleasurable activity for children of all ages.  Starting them young can produce a lifelong love for being in the kitchen and hopefully create a healthy eating habit. Preparing food with family can also create bonds as well as strengthen many developmental abilities in children including fine motor skills, learning cause and effect solutions, math skills while measuring, and so much more! This is a simple snack you and your child can make together.
