Encourage your kids to eat the rainbow

Posted on: 15th May 2014

With our deliciously squidgy fruit-packed loaves and our low calorie, individually portioned lunchbox size snacks, Soreen has found a number of ways to help kids eat more healthily.

To make their diets as beneficial as possible, children need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables on a regular basis.

Simply, we suggest getting them to ‘eat the rainbow’ every day. The rainbow is made up of the five colour groups of fruit and vegetables and by following it as a nutritional guide your kids can benefit from a whole spectrum of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. In fact, eating all five colour groups everyday is an excellent way to give kids the energy their bodies need to grow, learn and play and keep them tip-top at all times.

Here’s a guide to each colour group in the rainbow and how they can benefit your kids –
