Nutritionists tell us that a great way to have a well-rounded diet is to include all the colors of the rainbow in our diet. (No, ketchup doesn’t count for red.) But, as you browse the produce aisle, try to include all the different hues and you’ve upped the substance in your family’s diet. You know that pretty colors can entice many a picky eater to try a new food.
Another great way to encourage good eaters is to teach your peeps to garden. Our kids have always loved to plant seeds and seedlings, water the garden, and check on the harvest. And each one will at least try whatever it is we’re growing.
The Rainbow Vegetable Garden includes: 9 PLANTS (1 of each)
Eggplants: Purple Rain and Crescent Moon
Peppers: The Godfather, Orange Belle II and Red Delicious
Tomatoes:Burpee’s Big Boy, Sun Gold, BushSteak and Sweet Tangerine
