Eat the Rainbow

In order to feel your best, it is important to get a range of fruits and vegetables in your diet so that you get a variety of nutrients!

An easy way to try a wider variety of produce, is to “eat the rainbow!”

Note: This doesn’t mean to eat a variety of gummy bears, but instead to eat a variety of colors of naturally colorful whole foods. 😉

In our plans, we like to give you flexibility with the fruits and vegetables so that you can eat food you actually enjoy! (Bonus points if you can even choose what produce is on sale!)

Because we know you don’t have time to research new fruit and vegetables. We did it for you.

Here is an awesome graphic from The Whole Kids Foundation. You can see the entire pdf here.

So, next question…

How much is in a serving?

Typically, a 1/2 c is a single serving of vegetables, and a single serving of fruit is a medium whole fruit (think apple), [or two small fruits (think plum), or a handful (think grapes)].

If you’re an overachiever, our dietician also recommended the following serving size guide from the National Health Service – UK. It gives you specific serving sizes based on a large variety of fruits and vegetables. You can download the pdf HERE. 🙂

You’ve got this, Momma! 🙂
