more counter space

As in most homes, counter-space is a premium. I grew up with bananas in a bowl or on the counter. My husband joined the marriage with a little wooden stand that sat on our counter and kept the bananas fresher by hanging them.  
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.)
