What are Rainbow Foods?

Quite simply, rainbow foods are all the brightly colored fresh fruits and vegetables we should be eating on a regular, daily basis as part of a healthy diet plan.

Eating a variety of fresh produce each day provides our bodies with all the essential micronutrients essential for fighting off disease, strengthening the immune system and holding back the ageing process.
