Eat the rainbow, Lexington!

IMG_7065This week at Lexington we learned that different foods are different colors depending on what nutrients they have. Blue and purple foods are good for blood flow and concentration. Meanwhile orange foods are loaded with vitamin A, which helps with eyesight. We gathered carrots, tomatoes and kale from the garden to make a multi-colored salad. To end class we used garden fruits and vegetables to as stamps with rainbow colored paints to decorate our plates and remember to eat a rainbow!

It was so fun working with these kids and we look to having them visit the garden as we move on to our next garden class rotation!
