No matter what age we are, there’s just something magical about a rainbow!
Fruits come in every color of the rainbow and by serving them all together, it creates that magical effect right on the plate (or bowl or cup)!
If you’re looking for a fruity rainbow for your breakfast, try the rainbow fruit banana sushi or the rainbow fruit overnight oats.
Need dessert? The rainbow fruit pizza or rainbow fruit unicorn popsicles are fun fruit ideas.
When all of the fruits are together, the kids will even try ones they don’t think they like!
