National Banana Day fun at Abbotsleigh Care Home

We had a funny afternoon here at Abbotsleigh Care Home on Wednesday 17 April as we celebrated National Banana Day.

National Banana Day focuses on the nutrition of the fruit as well as the way comedy has used the banana in its acts! This low-fat, low-calorie snack offers a boost of fibre, potassium and vitamins, and also provides a healthy gram of protein, too.

To mark the day, we tried some banana smoothies and had a lot of fun dancing with giant bananas!

The smoothies went down very well and we sang ‘Bananas in pyjamas‘ all day of course! We could only remember the first two lines, but that’s all we needed. Ha!
