This is a magic-themed healthy children's recipe book that targets the most difficult dietary areas: treats, snacks and drinks. Eaten alongside a balanced wholefood diet, these recipes can add an extra boost of energy and get kids excited about healthy eating!

How to Eat a Rainbow really teaches children how to fill their plates with fruit and vegetables in all the colours of the rainbow, and the importance of eating a variety of colours every day. Each recipe is a world children can dive into while they unpack the ingredients and make their own work of art.
