Color Me Hungry!

If you are what you eat, how colorful are you? The next time you have a meal together, look around to see whose plate is the most colorful. Take a photo of your plate to capture your dinner rainbow. Which colors do you eat the most often and least often? Which foods change color when you cook them? Is there a color we rarely find in food? 

What a great way to practice comparing foods that belong in different categories!  You also will practice explaining why some color categories are more popular than others. 

A colorful plate is a healthy plate, so try to eat a range of colors at each meal. Talk to your family about why it's healthy to eat different kinds—and colors—of foods.

Colors in food are important for a healthy lifestyle, but did you know that they can be used for other purposes, too? Wonder of the Day #298 “Can You Make Paint Out Of Berries?” can help you explore how food can color the world outside of your plate!
