BANANAS (Musa paradisiaca)
Bananas contain practically no fat, have moderate calorie count and are extremely low in sodium.
Bananas are a good solid food for infants and aged.
When bananas are green tipped, use them for cooking; when all yellow for cooking or eating; when they are flecked with brown spots they are fully ripe. Fully ripe bananas are perfect for infant feeding, ideal for blending into cakes, cookies, bread, puddings, milkshakes, and banana Norwalk (see below)
