Eat The Rainbow
Sometimes getting the kids to eat healthier is like pulling teeth. What better way to get them excited about eating their fruits and veggies than introducing them to the colors of nature?
Eat the Rainbow:
- Red- strawberries, red bell peppers, watermelon, red apples, cherries, raspberries, tomatoes, cranberries, beets, red potatoes, rhubarb
- Orange- peaches, oranges, pumpkin, carrots, apricots, mangoes, butternut squash
- Yellow- lemons, bananas, squash, yellow bell pepper, pineapple
- Green- pears, granny smith apples, green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, avocado, cucumber, celery, kiwi, lettuce, spinach, peas
- Blue- blueberries, plums, eggplant, grapes, cabbage, onion, blackberries, raisins
Here are some of our favorite ways to help promote healthy eating each week:
Kids pick a color to eat from the weekly color chart. Fill in all the spots with fun stickers or draw silly characters in each box. This is a great visual way to keep your kid’s attention!
Pick a fruit for each color of the rainbow starting with blue up to red. These snack packs are simple to assemble and make sharing even easier.
Like a traditional pizza, but better! Who says you have to eat your fruits and veggies for breakfast, lunch or dinner? We’re thinking the greek yogurt paired with fresh fruit is great for dessert.
We’ll just leave this veggie dip here.
Pick your favorite veggies and fruits and throw them into the juicer. These healthy snack popsicles are an easy way to sneak the healthy into your kid’s desserts.
