Eat Healthy, Grow Strong: Rainbow Snack Tray
Getting kids involved in meal planning allows them to become more interested in different types of food and flavors. The kids and I sat down and talked about various foods and their colors.
We talked about the flavors and textures and whether things were healthy or not. Let’s just say that Gummi bears, while colorful, did not make it into the snack tray.
Once we wrote down all the foods by colors, I used a muffin tin to keep everything separated and keep the tasting portions small. Having the kids fill the tin made them more interested in trying things they hadn’t tasted before.
The kids seem more inclined to try strange foods or textures just because the colors catch their eyes. It’s also a lot of fun to hear what other things could fill the “rainbow!”
This rainbow snack tray is an interesting project and is great fun to serve at playdates with friends!
