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?

    Hi Please do not feed the animals, haven't seen you for a while. It's nice to see you back!

    Dear Ietizia, thank you for the comment.

    To Heidi, me too! Kinda tired of Halloween stuff. I've seen too many eye balls, spiders, ghosts......lately.

    Hi Sook, my son is 6 already and he still brings the book out once a while. He was happy to see this caterpillar snack :D Give it a try. Maybe your son will love it too!

  10. Compared to all the amazing above I made an almost embarrassing simple version (cultural difference?)for my sons 10th. birthday treat.
    Nice to do with the kids, without any difficult frosting. Greetings from plain Holland.
