Cat eye snacks are also made with simple ingredients you probably already have around the house. Banana slicing is a great self-esteem builder and fine motor skill builder, so get out those butter knives and give your kids a delicious job to do. They will love it.

My father in law used to call ice cream sundaes a simmy dimmy quiver with a nooka nacken on the end. Not sure how to spell any of it but that’s what I’m going with! lol! I always got a kick out of that!

    1. Get some spinach and whip you up one. The yummiest is some pineapple juice, a banana, a few strawberries, some honey and handful of spinach. SO GOOD!
