Ripe banana, peeled

BABIES ARE BIG ON BANANAS, FOR GOOD REASON--THEY'RE TASTY, EASY TO SWALLOW, AND VERY DIGESTIBLE. BANANAS MAKE VERY HANDY PREPACKAGED SNACKS. NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT TUCKING ONE INTO YOUR DIAPER BAG.

EVERYONE KNOWS HOW TO MASH A RIPE BANANA, BUT THERE ARE SOME OTHER WAYS TO SERVE THIS POPULAR FRUIT. BANANAS TURN BROWN WHEN MASHED, BUT THAT DOESN'T AFFECT THEIR NUTRITIONAL VALUE OR FLAVOR. IF DESIRED, ADD A TOUCH OF LEMON JUICE (AT 10 MONTHS AND UP) TO KEEP THE BANANA FROM BROWNING.

Mash banana with a fork and add a little breast milk, formula, juice, or water to adjust consistency if desired.

Makes 4 to 6 1-ounce or heaped tablespoon baby servings.

Freeze in heaped tablespoon mounds on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Place in plastic bag when frozen.

Also, frozen, peeled banana spears make a soothing teething food and are a good way to preserve a bunch of bananas that all ripen at once.
