I am very excited to announce a Today I Ate A Rainbow Kit: a new “must-have” product for a healthy family.
This product can be yours free. Read on!
When I first learned about Today I Ate A Rainbow Kit I thought it would be a great thing for kids who don’t eat their veggies. My kids do eat vegetables, but Today I Ate A Rainbow Kit makes it a lot more fun. Yet, when I received the kit and put it on our kitchen wall, the bright colors got everyone’s attention immediately.
The kit includes one large laminated heavy sheet with a rainbow on it. the sheet lists five major vegetable and fruit colors: red, orange, yellow. green and blue/purple. Under each color, there is a list of 12 fruits and vegetables of that color. Colorful magnets allow the kids ( or adults-I enjoy doing it) which veggies they ate that day. If they ate the whole rainbow they can be awarder the “I ate a rainbow” sticker. A wonderful picture storybook about eating vegetables is also included with the kit.
My children learned a lot from having Today I Ate A Rainbow Kit in the kitchen. They used to eat whatever I gave them, without paying too much attention to classifying fruits and vegetables by color, and now they do that. Healthy eating used to be something we just did and having this kit makes it fun. For the kids that don’t eat vegetables, the kit turns healthy eating into a fun game, so they will probably try a bell pepper or a carrot after playing with the kit.
The Rainbow Kit contains:
• 1 portable magnetic chart
• 4 sets of rainbow tracking magnets
• 4 achievement cloud magnets
• The Rainbow Bunch book
• 2 magnet strips for the free downloadable Today I Tried Chart
• Access to Shopping List and Rainbow Eater’s Certificate
Pros: Easy to use, fun, educational, makes a great gift, awakens interest in healthier eating, makes eating veggies a game
Cons: The magnets are too large to put one next to a fruit or a vegetable: each magnet would cover half of the category, so instead the y are designed to be put under each category. The magnets were probably made this way to make the kit more toddler-friendly, but an older child with the love of details would want smaller magnets.
My beloved kale- the nutrient powerhouse is not on the kit. The sugar-laden grapes are and corn, which is frequently GMO is as well, however. These things are small details and I am just being picky.
The verdict: Great product. Every child should grow up with one.
