Fruit & Veg Colour Chart

The easiest way to make a meal as nutritious as possible is to focus on colour. By eating a rainbow of colours, you end up eating an array of nutrients!

Draw up a rainbow chart like the one below and challenge the whole family to pick some red, orange, yellow, blue, green, indigo and violet fruit and vegetables each day. Even the pickiest child is bound to relish at least one of those fruity colours. If you fill your rainbow chart with all the colours, you can rest assured that the family is eating healthier while getting a great variety of immune boosting vitamins and disease-fighting phytochemicals.
