“Both of my kids ate this for an afternoon snack and my little boy repeatedly sang his version of ‘I ate a rainbow,'” the doctor said.

“My daughter proudly declared that rainbows count twice as much because they are homegrown,” she added.

And making the melts is super easy, she explained, and they can be stored in the fridge for a few days to make mornings easier.

She joked that there’s no such thing as too much cheese, unless you’re allergic, and that a hint of lemon should be so healthy it’s watering your eyes.

The Instagram post was liked by hundreds of moms and dads who said their kids love healthy snacks too.

‘These are the ones that initially sent me down the melted cheese wrapper rabbit hole. I have had various successes depending on what I have tried to hide in them,” said one woman.

“These are the favorites in my home,” another mom added.
