The Health Benefits Of Eating Bananas

I love to see cartoons; my favorite ones are Popeye, Tom & Jerry, etc. All these are funny and interesting cartoons, refreshing our minds and releasing our stress. As time advances, cartoons also change, increasing in different colors, faces, and more attractive and influencing kids every day. Today’s article is inspired by a wonderful cartoon, a small yellow henchman shaped like pill capsules. You are right. I am talking about Minions, which educated kids on the health benefits of eating bananas.

Minions have influenced the kids, and as an inspiration, they started eating bananas; it has majorly influenced kids’ health.

“Life is full of banana skins. You slip; you carry on.”

Minions are roughly one-third to one-half of the humans’ height, but they were later revealed to be 3″ and 7′ in height tall. They don’t have eyes like humans but have one or two eyes, and irises are always brown. They don’t have a nose but can smell as they are shown smelling fruit and are affected. Also, they don’t have ears but can hear and respond to our sounds. Minions are bald. They are absent-minded and have very mischievous streaks. They have exceptional engineering abilities; they design and construct spaceships and playthings. 

In 2010, Banana, The Minions’ short film, revealed an almost uncontrollable craving for fruit, especially bananas. So, this “Banana wants you to be happy; look, it is even smiling at you,” which is one of the healthy habits of eating bananas, and kids should opt for this healthy habit.
