Bananas are still the top choice of parents when it comes to picking a baby and toddler snack food, according to the results of the National Parenting Product Awards competition. For the eighth time in the competition’s nine year history, ‘Freddy Fyffes’ – the popular pre-packed bananas from Irish banana producer Fyffes – were the chosen winner in the ‘Feeding and Weaning’ section based on research conducted amongst parents and industry experts. 

Accepting the award at a prize-giving ceremony held at the Westbury Hotel, Dublin recently, Fyffes head of marketing, Emma Hunt-Duffy thanked competition organisers adding: “It’s fantastic to see parents continue to choose Freddy Fyffes bananas; families tell us they love their versatility as an on-the-go snack or as part of their breakfast or healthier desserts. Bananas are soft, easy for little hands to manage and full of natural goodness.”
