At Small World Child Care we want to encourage our children to live a healthy conscience lifestyle.

Today we challenge you to create your own rainbow.

There’s always GOLD at the end of the rainbow.

Ingredients / Examples

  • RED: apples, tomatoes, cherries, watermelon, strawberries

  • ORANGE: carrots, oranges, sweet potatoes, squash

  • YELLOW: peppers, bananas, lemons, corn, pineapple

  • GREEN: broccoli, kiwi, celery, limes,  peas, avocado

  • BLUE/PURPLE: grapes, blueberries, raisins, plums

  • WHITE: cauliflower, coconut, rice, yogurt

Directions / Preparation

  • Gather all your favorite fruits and veggies that correspond with  each food group.

  • After they are cleaned and cooked (if needed) go ahead and lay them out (on your plate or dish of choice) in a shape of a rainbow.

  • While setting up your rainbow, we encourage you to go over why we try to incorporate these colors into our daily eating routine. Pictured to the left is a chart describing the health benefits to each group.

  • Lastly, If you have completed the challenge of the day, go ahead and give yourself a high five and send us pictures of what food you chose to fill your rainbow of health with.
