A thumbs up from Healthy Kids Association

Healthy Kids Association has given a huge thumbs up to the Coles Fresh Stikeez Rainbow Challenge campaign and its mission to get the kids of Australia eating more fruit and veg!

 

Why are campaigns like this so important?

One in four Aussie children aged between 5 and 17 are overweight or obese and while 73% of children aged 2-17 eat enough fruit, just 6.3% eat the recommended serves of vegetables (ABS 2017/18).

Healthy eating starts at home, and “eating the rainbow” is one of the best ways to ensure kids are getting all the vitamins and minerals that can be found packed into all those awesome fruits and vegetables. Not only does the rainbow make eating fun, but setting goals and rewarding healthy choices have been shown to set up healthy habits for life. We hope the Rainbow Challenge will encourage children to eat fruit and vegetables they may never have tried before.
