Add some color to your palate! This homemade book makes eating the rainbow an attainable goal. Work together to identify and illustrate the colorful foods you already eat, using the familiar hues of the rainbow as a guide. You can encourage trying new foods by challenging young illustrators to incorporate more “rainbow” food through taste tests – then add these foods to your book over time. Aim for balance across the rainbow!
