Great Tips for Marketing Bananas to Kids

Marketing Bananas to Kids

It’s a New Year, a new you. With resolutions of health in mind for ourselves, why can’t we help our children learn the benefits of being healthy too? We learn from an early age from our parents the lifestyle choices that shape our decisions throughout life. So let’s help parents make the nutritious choice for their kids and teach them the power of bananas.

It’s time for kids to believe that these little yellow fruit are more than just something cartoon characters slip on. Bananas need to be cool in their minds and if we portray them that way by sharing the health benefits and the useful ways they help us, children will be begging their parents for more bananas.

Here’s a list of fun facts that can resonate with kids on Point-of-purchase signage:

  • Athletes eat us because we’re a good way to get the kind of good carbohydrates that power muscles
  • A good source of dietary fibre
  • A rich source of potassium which helps keep your heart, nervous system and kidneys healthy
  • Packed full of vitamin C
  • Contains vitamin B6, which is good for the nervous system, healthy skin, and helps produce energy in the body
  • Bananas have virtually no fat, and it would be almost impossible to get fat on bananas.
  • Bananas can be found in other colors, including red
  • Banana plants are not trees, they are a type of herb
  • Humans have grown bananas for thousands of years
  • Most species of banana plant originated in Southeast Asia
  • A row of bananas is sometimes called a ‘hand’, while a single banana is called a ‘finger’
  • Plantains are harder and contain less sugar than normal bananas, they are often used in cooking
  • Bananas sent overseas are picked green and ripened under special conditions when they reach their destination

Share these with your customers and help kids understand the value and fun bananas are.
