Your kids might pull their noses away from traditional raw fish sushi (mine do, serious kudos to yours if they can appreciate this fine Japanese food!). But they might love this Rainbow Fruit Banana Sushi. 

Kids will love THIS Rainbow Fruit Banana Sushi as a snack because it’s made with just fresh fruit!

It’s a great way to “eat the rainbow” and pile on all your favorite fruits in a few bites.

Check out how easy it is to make this colorful Rainbow Fruit Banana Sushi below.

This delightful fruit sushi is a great start to the day as part of breakfast or add it to round up lunch for some fruit “dessert.”

One of my favorite things about this guilt-free treat is that it’s packed with antioxidants, vitamins and light proteins.

My kids also have a blast learning to eat with chopsticks. Introducing chopsticks creates a wonderful opportunity for a lesson in the food traditions of other cultures. They’re also a great way to get kids to slow down while snacking. Instead of throwing back a handful of something, focus and time must be spent on the process of eating.

You can also use this snack as a unique way to explore in-season fruits and local shopping.

Creating a game out of finding a “fruit rainbow” for your sushi is a fun way to teach kids about so many things…why fruits are different colors or the colors (types) of fruits that are grown in your area.

For older kids, this snack is a perfect make-it-yourself intro to chopping and the proper use of kitchen tools like paring knives.

To assemble 1 sushi banana, you’ll need the following ingredients (But, don’t waste! 1 sushi banana only requires a little bit of each fruit, so be ready with some tasty leftovers… perhaps a fruit salad at the end of the day?)

This yummy snack is so beautifully colorful, but also such a TASTY treat!
