My children like to say “taste the rainbow” when they eat something they like. They also say “tastes like sunshine”, “tastes like rainbow flowers”. I think it’s so cute! When visiting a friend, she thought my children were quoting an advertisement, to her dismay. I insisted that they weren’t and that I had helped teach them to say “taste the rainbow” by making this snack. I love making it so much, and it’s a great surprise to have waiting for them when they get home from preschool.
It’s very easy to do, just buy any selection of produce that is red, orange, yellow, green, blue and indigo. My selection today were strawberries, orange pepper, golden grape tomatoes, raw broccoli, blueberries, and red grapes. Select organic when possible for higher nutrition and exposure to fewer chemicals. Rinse thoroughly and cut into bit size pieces. Arrange in the shape of a rainbow on a plate big enough to hold all those fruits and veggies! Enjoy watching your children eat! They ate almost all the colors, unfortunately the orange pepper wasn’t a favorite of the kids, but I love them so bonus pepper for me! Yum!
