You can use any kind of colored cereal you prefer. I try to find ones that are void of artificial colors when possible. Make sure to read the label. If you don’t have time to go all out on the caterpillar, skip the legs and head, slice the coated banana into 1/2-inch rounds and call it sushi! So many options–so little effort!
