4th H for Health

December Edition

Christmas Banana Snowmen


2 bananas

1/4 of a carrot

Handful of currants or sultanas chopped

3 strawberries

6 grapes

6 skewers



  1. Cut the bananas into thick slices (approx. 9 rounds per banana) –
  2. Peel the carrot and cut into small triangular slivers for a pointy nose –
  3. Trim the stem from the strawberries and then cut in half. You should get two hats out of each strawberry –
  4. Cut the grapes in half. (We only used the smooth half and ate the stem end) –
  5. To assemble, thread three slices of banana on to each skewer followed by a strawberry hat and grape half. Gently press the currents into the banana slices to create eyes and the buttons on the body then add the carrot nose
