My friends make fun of me because I am always the one to make sure we have fruits and veggies at all of our gatherings. I have a very practical approach to healthy eating and part of that is having healthy food available for when kids decide they are hungry. I am a big fan of everyone sitting down at the dinner table and enjoying the same meal together but realize that can something be a challenge.

For this project I wanted to make dinner fun again and I wanted to make trying new food exciting! I decided to break the meals down by each color. My oldest already knows his colors but this is a great way to introduce colors to younger children. And how fun it is to have a whole dinner made with foods that are your favorite color! We are currently working on letters and spelling out the color was a great way to start to recognize letters. We did a different color each night for a week but you could do one color a week or even one a month. The best part about this is there are multiple foods in each color (well except for blue, blue is tricky) but you can pick foods you know your kids will eat along with a couple that might be a little out of their comfort zone. Click the links below to learn more about what we did for each color meal. I also partnered with my fellow “Farmwife” blogger friends to come up with additional drinks, desserts and crafts for every color.
