Rainbow plate by Doctor Preeya Alexander
Illus. by Annabel Cutler. Little Steps Publishing, 2019. ISBN:

Highly recommended. This is a simple story about eating well and teaching children good habits for healthy eating later in life.
Comparing the foods to the rainbow makes it a fun story and could get young children thinking about what they are eating and how they can vary what they are eating.
The illustrations in the book support the story well making it fun to read.
The introduction for parents in the front of this book is a great reminder to parents about the importance of eating healthily, and that also it doesn't have to be a chore, it can be a game. Use the rainbow plate to see how many different colors you can eat in a day.
You could also keep a record and see if over a week you can manage to eat all of the colors of the rainbow.
I highly recommend this book.
