"Five to six servings of a combination of colourful fruits and vegetables are recommended for your growing child," says Janvi Chitalia, an integrative gut microbiome health coach and functional medicine nutritionist

Most children are picky eaters. And as such, it becomes a task for their parents to get them to eat something, anything. In their quest to make things interesting for kids, they look for colours and shapes in their food. It is believed that rainbow-coloured foods entice them quite a lot, which is why doctors and nutritionists suggest adding more colourful fruits and vegetables to their diet.

Janvi Chitalia, an integrative gut microbiome health coach and functional medicine nutritionist says rainbow foods are characteristically like phytonutrients or phytochemicals, which are natural compounds of all the food plants. They play a role in giving plant foods their colour, taste and smells.

The various fruits and vegetables which add on these benefits are apples, beans — like red or kidney beans — cherries, beetroot, red bell peppers, cranberries, plum, pomegranate, strawberries, watermelon, onion, grapes, plum, grapefruit.
