If you have or had young kids at home, you probably are familiar with the famous kid's book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

This after school snack for my son was made from Babybel cheese, green apple, a little piece of cheese slice and fruit leather. Pretty fun and healthy, isn't it?

    Nice to do with the kids, without any difficult frosting. Greetings from plain Holland.
