Check out this adorable caterpillar lunch idea. It’s just one of many from this super-creative book by Mark Northeast called Funky Lunch: Happy Food for Happy Children.

Plus, he has a new book out now called Funky Party: Party Food for Happy Children. And it, as you may have guessed, adorable party food ideas for kids. Including another awesome caterpillar that caught my eye. I think I might just need to have a “Very Hungry Caterpillar” party some day!
