Caterpillar Lunch

Have lunch just like the Hungry Caterpillar in Eric Carle’s classic children’s book!  All you have to do is follow a very simple formula:

  • Eat one of something.
  • Next, eat two of something different.
  • Followed by three of something different from the other two.
  • Now, eat four of something new.
  • Then, eat five – I think you are catching on!
  • Finally, eat a variety of things all mixed together.

Our favorite Caterpillar Lunch includes:

  • 1 Pretzel Stick
  • 2 Carrots
  • 3 Pieces of Cheese
  • 4 Avocado Slices
  • 5 Strawberries
  • Variety – Trail Mix (Nuts, Dried Fruit, and m&m’s)

We often eat and while reading the story using our food choices instead of what is written in the book.  What would your Caterpillar Lunch include?
