Reviews for Banana-Pear Caterpillar
"I made these with my kindergarten kids. They were easy, healthy, and delicious!"
"I haven't tried this, but it looks adorable and easy to make. My question is, can it be made 4 hours in advance without the bananas turning brown; possibly lemon juice? Would love to make it for centerpieces for a child's party."
"For children who won't eat lettuce color shredded coconut green and put that down as base. To color coconut put into a glass jar, add few drops green food color. Put on lid and shake to evenly distribute color. Pour onto cookie sheet and spread out to dry."
"Wonderful for when grandchildren come over."
"AWESOME IDEA! How cute for summertime!"
"I thought it was very good. It sure is cute!! But my picky eaters won't eat the saled, so i put it on a cute platter."
"This is one of the cutest ideas I've ever seen. I have 5 great grandchildren under the age of 4,so this will go over big. Thanks for the great idea."
