I often have my grandson at my house. Being a toddler, he is a picky eater. I came up with this idea when we were reading a book called "Eating a Rainbow", which was a book to help learn colors.
You are on the right track! The more "colors" you eat the more healthy nutrients you are getting. This was instilled in my son as he was growing up.
Once as a teenager we had a girlfriend over for dinner. She proved to be a "picky eater" and had very little of anything on her plate. My son spoke up and told her she didn't have enough "colors" on her plate. The look on her face was priceless...one of those "What ARE you talking about". Later as a bachelor he called me one night and told me not to worry because he was still eating his "colors". "Of course" he said, "I'm getting a lot of red right now, you know...Chef Boyardee". Priceless memories!
