Crunch the rainbow

Nicole Toia,

This term we challenge you to crunch the rainbow for Crunch&Sip® by making a rainbow in your classroom.

Eating different coloured fruits and vegetables provides lots of different vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Which is why crunching on a rainbow will help kids get the right balance of nutrients they need for a healthy body.

Add colour to your classroo

We have a range of Crunch&Sip resources to download and add some colour to your classroom. These include: 

Other activities you could try in your classroom to encourage kids to enjoy colourful vegetables include:

  • Encourage a rainbow theme for Crunch&Sip across the week by making each day a different colour, see below for some inspiration.

  • Make rainbow vegetable skewers for a Crunch&Sip inspired activity, check out our video

  • Make Unicorn Noodles using red cabbage, rice noodles, and some lemon or lime juice. See the activity instructions here.
