Back in August, I wrote a post about a grocery shopping trip that my daughter and I took together where she asked me if we could buy enough food so that when we got home we could eat a Rainbow Snack.
That afternoon, we did indeed eat a rainbow snack! I cannot express what a proud and happy Mama I was! My daughter actually ASKED to EAT A RAINBOW!
This made me think of a company that I had seen around Twitter for quite some time, so I decided to contact them about my post and potentially reviewing their amazing sounding product.
Today I Ate a Rainbow is a company that truly cares about children learning to eat healthy. They are passionate about their products and helping parents with their little picky eaters.
The Rainbow Kit consists of:
Complete “Today I Ate A Rainbow!™” Chart
- 1 Today I Ate A Rainbow!™ chart (not magnetic)
- 4 sets of coloured magnets
- 4 achievement magnets
- 2 fridge magnets
- 1 colour-coded shopping list
- The Rainbow Bunch Book
- BONUS! Rainbow Bookmark
The Chart is a laminated chart that has two adorable strip magnets to attach it to your fridge. It comes with 4 different shaped magnets in the colours of the rainbow so that up to 4 members of your family can track their rainbow eating progress (or as my children like to do, add more when they eat more so they each pick two shapes each day). Every time your child eats (or in my three year old’s case even kisses or licks) a food item of a given colour, they put up a magnet on the chart. Once they have put up a magnet for each colour, they get to put up their “I Ate a Rainbow” magnet and in our house, we celebrate with this song:
Isn’t she scrumptious?!
The Rainbow Bunch Book is a really sweet and fun book that is an excellent way to introduce the topic of healthy eating! The book has a really fun rhythm to it that rhymes. Each rhyming word is even written in red text; so many lessons can be done with this book – the Kindergarten teacher in me LOVES this book! The Rainbow Bunch Book introduces the concept of eating a rainbow and why it is important for your body. It also talks about what happens when you don’t eat well and it is written with the young child in mind. The book is a terrific length to engage even the youngest of children.
The Shopping List is an excellent tool to use in getting your children involved in the shopping process because that is where healthy eating starts!
In our house, we just can’t say enough GREAT things about Today I Ate a Rainbow products! They are fun and educational at the same time and as far as I’m concerned, the products are somewhat of a miracle worker because my three old, the pickiest eater on the planet, has even been encouraged to eat (or at least try) healthier – and that is a challenge in itself!
