Kid's Snack - Healthy Spider Much
The ONIE Project loves finding new and fun ways to eat healthy. It can be hard to get a child to try to eat something new. One way to overcome this is by letting kids play with their food. Food play let's kids explore new snacks and eat their creations. The ONIE Project put this method to the test with healthy spider much snacks.
