Have you ever seen a monkey ill?

BananasWhen I was a child, maybe 4 or 5, my parents took me to a zoo. Well, I sort of recall it but it’s a long time ago now!

At that age, your first visit to a zoo was so exciting. I mean, I saw pictures of animals in books, some even in pop-up books, but to see them for real, well…what a feeling!

I’m sure every child has a favourite animal and the good old monkey is a firm favourite because monkeys are fun and like to entertain the watching children (and adults of course!).

Now, when I was that said child, I noticed that monkeys were always linked to bananas – I’m not exactly sure how many bananas I saw consumed by them but they do eat bananas!

I’m not even sure at that age whether I had tasted a banana. It looked weird, had a colour that resembled the sun and there were different sizes. It was mind-blowing for a young child to take in (well, sort of mind-blowing!).

I think that, ever since that visit to the zoo, I’ve eaten bananas almost every day. In fact, when I worked for the local council, I used to eat 4 or 5 in the office! I was known for my banana stash and anyone who wanted a quick energy fix, could pop round to my desk and we would barter for a banana! I usually ended up with a pack of staples!

These days, my motto is ‘a banana a day keeps the doctor away’ – rather than apples, though apples do have many nutritional values.


Well, according to Seenox, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way ever again!


Have you ever seen a monkey ill? Ha, well maybe that is a tongue-in-cheek comment from someone on that website but monkeys do always look and act healthy!

Now the serious part…

Bananas have so many health benefits; you should really make the good old banana a BIG part of your diet. They don’t just provide instant energy but have many nutritious values.
