{GIVEAWAY} “Today I Ate A Rainbow” Review

Rainbow Kit I love eating vegetables and fruits.  My mother always had us eating vegetables when we were little.  We had a garden in our backyard so fresh vegetables were always available to us.

So I am trying to instill that into my family, but it’s been difficult.  My husband has such a limited palette for vegetables and basically refuses to eat anything new, which doesn’t bode well when I am trying to introduce new things, especially fruits and vegetables to my 7 yr old son.  He has a very limited palette as well.  He basically loves lettuce and cucumbers, and believe it or not will eat Edamame with my husband, but that’s it.  As far as fruits the only fruit he gets is in his apple juice.

I had a therapist come and work with him at home trying to introduce different fruits and vegetables to him.  But it’s been difficult, see my son has special needs and because of his oral hypersensitivity, makes it challenging to introduce him to different textures and tastes.

In this video you can see the therapist working with him, having him nibble on different fruits and vegetables:

I was hoping this chart would help and it has but again only for the things he likes.  We are getting there, just not “eating a full rainbow yet”, but I am optimistic that one day he will be able to apply all of the stickers.

So what exactly is “Today I Ate A Rainbow”?

Kia Robertson the creator of Today I Ate A Rainbow Chart needed a way to keep track of the produce her daughter was eating. Kia found that when life got busy she wasn’t always ensuring that her daughter was getting all the proper fruits and vegetables each day. So she created this colorful visual chart.  It’s also a great way to practice colors and shapes too.  There are magnetic stars, squares, triangles and circles.

(Disclosure: I was given a pack of Today I Ate A Rainbow to facilitate this post.  All opinions are my own.)

{REVIEW} EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale

scale   EatSmart Digital Food Scale

I was so excited when asked to review the EatSmart Digital Food Scale.  I have never had a food scale and have always wanted one.

I have all intentions of using this food scale for exactly what it’s supposed to be for, weighing food and watching my calories.  But there has been so much going on in my house and with the holidays coming, just recovering from shoulder surgery a few weeks ago and family being in town that starting a diet now would be useless.

So in the meantime I am going to also be using this food scale to help me with my new hobby …soap-making!  I took a class in soap-making, so you can see the Peppermint soap I made in class on the EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Kitchen Scale.

I was hoping to make my first batch of Lavender and Lemongrass soap for this review using my ingredients pictured below.  But there are not enough hours in the day to get it all done.  eat smart 2
