Healthy "Dessert" for Little Ones

I was talking to my mom this morning about some of the "desserts" and special snacks she used to feed my sister and I when we were little. They remained favorites for a long time and I look forward to introducing them to my little ones as they get old enough to want something special. I thought I would share the recipes with you!

Banana Pudding
Mash up a banana (ripe ones work well for this, but any is fine).
Add colored sprinkles to the top.
Serve with a spoon.

Apple Surprise
Add 1-2 drops of food color (change color based on your own whim) to bottom of a small bowl.
Pour or spoon apple sauce into bowl.
Add sprinkles to top (optional)
Serve with a spoon for dessert.
(Your child will love the surprise as they stir up their Apple Surprise to discover what color it turns!)

Apple Snacks
Cut apple into small pieced (size depends on your child's age)
Put in a small sandwich bag and add a little bit of sugar and a bunch of Cinnamon.
Hold bag closed and shake until well coated.
Can be eaten out of the bag or put onto a plate or in a bowl.

Mom says that she used to offer us bananas or apples as snacks and we would say no... but when she then said, "do you want apple snacks?" we would be very excited! :) (Note... calling it by it's "dessert" name is very important!)

She was also telling me that she would serve plain applesauce with lunch and it was just applesauce, but when she made it "Apple Surprise" it was wildly accepted as dessert after dinner!

Any more little ideas to share???
