The importance of eating the rainbow

Eating the rainbow is all about having a diet rich in colorful superfoods. They get their “super” name because they’re some of the most nutrient-rich foods you can eat!

These health-empowering foods are often exceptionally high in nutrient density and have high levels of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients that are important to maintain good health and prevent disease.
