Eat a Rainbow

Why are there so many songs about rainbows? Because they're amazing and beautiful—not just in the sky, but also on the dining table! "Eating a rainbow" helps your body get a complete range of nutrients.

What does it mean to eat a rainbow?

  • Choosing a variety of different-colored whole foods throughout the day and week.
  • The more naturally occurring colors on your plate at each meal or snack, the better.
  • It does not mean making a rainbow with artificially colored foods (gummy snacks, soda, popsicles, etc.)
