What do I feed my Painted Lady Butterfly?

I ordered caterpillars online and now I have a Painted Lady and his/her wings are bend so it can't fly. So I am not going to let it go. I'm going to keep it but I don't know what to feed it. I've been feeding him/her watermelon for the past couple of days but it seems hungry and tries to suck my finger (With it's straw mouth) when I pick it up. I think its getting a proper amount of water but not enough food. What should I feed it? Also I read online that you could give them Gatorade. Would it be fine to give it Gatorade also?
