After School Snack Attack
After a long, grueling day of spelling tests, math problems, science experiments, and history lessons, you finally make it home. You are starving!
In reality, you probably are not starving, but you are definitely hungry. School is a lot of work. Your brain is getting bigger and smarter by the minute. Your body is growing too! So, there’s no question your tummy is growling, “Feed meeeee!”
