When you were a lil’ kid, it felt like forever counting down the minutes until lunchtime so you could start snacking on the frosted animal crackers in your Blue’s Clues lunchbox. Now that you’re “all grown up” and can definitely snack whenever you want (#guilty), it’s time to bring back that same childhood joy to your snack time. Here’s how.
