Are you looking for a fun new way to get your kids to eat healthier? Check out my Rainbow Dinner Project where we ate a meal featuring every color of the rainbow.
This post is all about the color BLUE.
This meal was the most tricky! There really aren’t that many blue foods to choose from. I am allergic to blue cheese so that was out.
I tried to have around 5 things for each color/meal including a meat, starch, fruit, veggie and dairy item (we are dairy farmers you know!). This proved to be tricky on this one. The blue corn chips counted as the vegetable, a stretch I know, but it’s only one meal! Blueberry yogurt provided the side. I found this Blueberry BBQ recipe that helped our pulled pork turn blue. And we used blueberries to spell out b-l-u-e to help us learn those letters!
The verdict? Our oldest son (3 years old) was all about the chips, yogurt and blueberries! I liked the flavor of the pulled pork. My picky eater husband wasn’t impressed by the blue color of the BBQ sauce but said, “it wasn’t that bad.” Blue food coloring can be used to help provide more blue food color choices.
