It can be difficult to get kids to eat their recommended 5+ servings of fruits and vegetables every day. That is why Kia Robertson, founder of Today I Ate A Rainbow!, created this interactive nutritional game that makes eating fruits and vegetables fun! The game contains a chart that groups fruits and vegetables by the colors of the rainbow and magnets to track the fruits and vegetables kids eat throughout the day. If kids can mark off all the colors on the chart, they’ve eaten a rainbow! Kia uses colors to classify fruits and vegetables because the different colors of fruits and vegetables signify the different nutrients contained within them. For children to get all the nutrients they need, they must try to “eat a rainbow” every day. We love Kia’s simple message to eat a rainbow because makes it easy for parents and children to know they are getting the nutrients their bodies need.
From the Mouth of a Kid:
I love saying I’ve eaten a rainbow and using all the fun colored magnets!
From the Mind of a Parent:
My children respond so well to the color coordinated game – they actually have a sense of pride about them when they manage to mark off all their colorful eating! We’ve made a point of really celebrating when they’ve managed to eat their way through the rainbow, encouraging them more and more to enjoy their healthful eating!
