Save room AND have fresh bananas! Pop by any hardware store, or even Target and buy one of those mug hooks (any screw-in hook that is big enough.) Find an out-of-the-way spot to install the hook, hang the bananas and you're ready to go.
Kids and bananas
Bananas are a great early food for older infants and toddlers. You can mash them to the appropriate consistency. Older kids get a kick out of the peeling, and my 3 year-old likes to cut slices and pass them out at breakfast. (Check out Ikea for their sturdy, kids' table-ware that's perfect for learning skills.)
