There’s definitely a holiday out there for everything, but this one was too good not to pass up. January 21 is National Banana Bread Day! Banana bread is a great way to use up overripe bananas and it makes a great snack or breakfast item. Celebrate this little-known holiday by rolling up your sleeves and spending some quality time in the kitchen with your toddler. This also makes for a fantastic rainy day activity. Make sure to share photos of your banana bread on our Facebook page if you and your kids make one!
