Chef's Note

If you like adding chips to your child’s lunch box, why not replace them with banana chips? That way, you’ll be adding a fruit or vegetable. Why fruit or vegetable? Because you can make them with either bananas (still firm, so that they don’t fall apart when cooked), or plantains (sometimes called “cooking bananas”), as prepared in the Caribbean.

Bananas are rich in calories which the body needs to work, play and keep warm. They provide energy by means of their sugar and starch content.

What’s more, bananas are a good source of vitamin C. It strengthens body tissue while helping it to assimilate iron, and promotes good metabolic function. Bananas are also a good source of vitamin A, necessary for good growth, good vision and the prevention of illness.

- Oil for frying
- Salt as desired
  1. Heat the oil in a skillet. 
  2. Peel the bananas or plantains and slice them about 2-3 mm thick.
  3. Place the slices on a plate and sprinkle with salt.
  4. When the oil is very hot, fry the banana slices until lightly golden. 
  5. Drain on paper towels.
