Rainbows of real food are magic!
We recently completed a quantitative research project with Ryerson University, which measured the impact of our program on children's behaviour. The study showed a clear & statistically significant impact: after participating in Rainbow Plate workshops, kids ate more fruits and vegetables, and were more willing to try new foods! The study has been submitted for publication - check back here for updates!
Since launching in 2012, Rainbow Plate has worked with over 14,000 kids, parents, educators and health practitioners to achieve the following feats!
- More than 6000 lbs of red cabbage (not an easy vegetable to get kids to eat) have been marveled at and munched on.
- We have delivered hundreds of hands-on workshops in schools, camps, child care and community organizations in the GTA.
- After participating in a Rainbow Plate workshop, 80% of kids consistently report that they tried a new fruit or vegetable (yippee!)
