The bright vivid colors are what most people would say! Did you know that some of the best nutrition can be found in foods whose colors look a lot like what you see in a rainbow? Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.

Eating a rainbow of colorful food helps your body get a wide range of nutrients. Nutrients are vitamins and minerals that are important because they help your body work to be the very best it can be!
