Meet Rainbow Plate: an interactive approach to food education that’s jammed with personality. 

Our mission is to support children and adults to harness a happy, healthy and vibrant connection with real food.

The core of our business is to craft and share thoughtful, innovative resources around food and nutrition. We’ve woven our  action-packed, flavour enhanced approach into workshops, seminars and resources to encourage kids, teachers, parents and caregivers to create their own healthy eating environments.  Our goal is to help transform kids into lifelong competent, thoughtful eaters.

We have worked with thousands of kids and adults in schools, camps, child care centers and corporate settings across the GTA. You can see some of our current and past clients below.

Our approach is to focus less on nutrition lessons and more on inspiring people to simply embrace real food.  Using an evidence-based approach, we get kids excited about eating rainbows of fruits and vegetables, and we make it easy for adults to raise children who are lifelong healthy eaters. Our colourful programs, products and services are creating a healthier future!

Rainbow Plate was created by Janet Nezon. Janet is an educator with a B.Sc. in Nutritional Science and Master of Health Science degree in Health Promotion, from University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine.  She is also the proud mom of three young adult children. Since 1985 Janet has worked as an educator and facilitator in a variety of settings, including several years as Director of Education and a long career training registered health professionals.



A message from Janet: “My biggest passion is real food.  I truly believe that healthy eating is much easier than most people think, and that it is within everyone’s reach!  My mission is to take the science of nutrition and health and translate it into simple, everyday actions for real people like you! I would love to work with you or your group to inspire and empower you to eat better and feel healthier.

If you are looking for me, you will often find me at home with my family, out in the field with my dog Gus, or taking pictures of the beautiful, healthy rainbows on my plate!”
