Today I Ate A Rainbow Review and Giveaway!


You know how much I love Wean Cubes, right? Well, here's yet another amazing find I'd like to share with you. I love, love, LOVE Today I Ate A Rainbow! In fact, when it comes to getting kids to eat healthy, Wean Green and Today I Ate A Rainbow go hand in hand. In fact, they're like BFFs!!!
As parents, we all know that kids need a minimum of 5 fruits and veggies a day...every day. PTPA Award Winner, Today I Ate A Rainbow provides parents, grandparents, babysitters, daycare and other caretakers tools to raise healthy kids.

The first time I had ever heard of Today I Ate A Rainbow was a few months ago. Kia Robertson was on a few of the online communities for Moms that I was in. I'm so glad we "met"! Her rainbow package is a brilliant tool for encouraging kids to eat their fruits and veggies. The interactive chart makes eating healthy FUN! The colourful cartoon magnets make tracking all the fruits and veggies lots of fun. The rainbow shopping list is pretty cool too! Oh, and Little One LOVES listening to me read the Rainbow Bunch story book!The package contains the following:
• Complete "Today I Ate A Rainbow!™" Chart
• 1 Today I Ate A Rainbow!™ chart
• 4 sets of coloured magnets
• 4 achievement magnets
• 2 fridge magnets
• 1 colour-coded shopping list
• The Rainbow Bunch Book
• BONUS! Rainbow Bookmark


Excerpt from the Today I Ate A Rainbow website:
"Many phytonutrients give fruit and vegetables their bright colour… the brighter the better! Our chart is made up of these major colour groups: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue-Purple. The different bright colours signify the different phytonutrients that each fruit or vegetable contains, therefore we use the Rainbow colours as a guide to getting a wide range of phytonutrients and nutrients in your children’s diet. Young children don’t need to know what specific nutrients each fruit or vegetable features: this chart makes it really easy for them – they just need to Eat a Rainbow every day!"

Oh, and how cute is this??


Seriously, what could be easier and more fun? Little One is still very young (she's only 23 months old), but she LOVES eating rainbows. Luckily for me, she always goes for the brightest foods on her plate. She loves raspberries, blueberries, sweet potato, carrots, broccoli, zucchini, eggplant...The brighter/more colourful, the better!

While Little One is still very young, I am actively trying to instill healthy eating habits. The chart and magnets are really attractive for young kids. We have a lot of kids who are a bit older than Little One who come over and they LOVE the rainbow chart and magnets!

Some may think it's too soon to start teaching Little One about eating rainbows, but I think it's never too soon when it comes to habit forming. Can you imagine how proud I was of my toddler when she turned down the cotton candy my friend's daughter offered her and opted for an apple? That's my girlie! :)

I would love to win a rainbow kit for my house! I have 3 girls 5 and under, and visual cues are best for this age! The concept seems easy to understand.

This sounds like a great way to keep track of what my little guy is eating and a fun way for him to learn about healthy eating and to get all the vitamins he needs for healthy development.

i would love to win this for my daughter. We are a vegetarian family, so it's really important for my kids to eat a good variety of foods. My daughter is 4 and very picky, i think this would really help her to make healthy choices!

I think this is a great tool for teaching children to eat healthy. And I think I could use a hand keeping track, too. I would love to try this with my three year old.
