Eat A Rainbow

Eat A Rainbow Every Day!

To be healthy, kids need to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables every day. By using a rainbow as a guide, you can ensure that children benefit from a wide range of vitamins and minerals. No single fruit or vegetable provides all the nutrients that kids need. By breaking produce down into color groups of red, orange, yellow, green and purples you can make eating fruits and vegetables fun and easy for kids! Even at a very young age, kids can easily grasp the concept of eating a rainbow.

Eating colorful fruits and vegetables help protect kids from cancer and other chronic diseases. They're nutritious and delicious. The color makes all the difference. Within each color are disease fighting phytochemicals, the good guys, that fight to keep you strong and healthy. Fruits and vegetables also provide a wide range of valuable nutrients; like fiber, folate, potassium, magnesium, vitamins A and C.

So be colorful! Blue is Beautiful. Red is Rockin'. Green is Groovy. Yellow is yummy. Orange is Outrageous.

Eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables every day.
