Banana Stickers

My son is a big fan of bananas.  This is a part of his diet that I whole-heartedly support and encourage.  What my son is not a big fan of, however, are the stickers fruit companies place on the banana peel.  As a matter of fact, he will refuse to eat any banana that does not abide by his "No-Sticker-On-The-Peel" policy.

I tried to explain to him that since, technically, he does not even eat the peel, it shouldn't matter whether there is a promotional sticker on it or not.  He, in return, sighed patiently and said "Daddy, the stickers are no good for me" and walked away with an apple instead.

I learned two important things this morning: (1) I will need to pre-screen all bananas before placing them in the kitchen and (2) there is a good chance my son has actually eaten a banana peel sticker in the past.
