Bananas have high potassium and magnesium and are low in sodium content, which is a great combination when it comes to blood pressure. Bananas also contain carotenoids that are converted to vitamin A, which is highly beneficial for your kid’s vision. The potassium content in bananas helps grow and strengthen bones.

Bananas contain fiber, potassium, folate, and antioxidants, such as vitamin C. All of these support heart health. A 2017 review found that people who follow a high fiber diet have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease than those on a low fiber diet.

Side effects of bananas are rare but may include bloating, gas, cramping, softer stools, nausea, and vomiting. In very high doses, bananas might cause high blood levels of potassium. Some people are allergic to bananas.
