This 'rainbow' tip is a great way to get your child eating their fruit and veg

It can be hard convincing your kids to eat healthy food.

My toddler is currently going through a Cookie Monster phase of asking for nothing but biscuits.

If you're going through the same predicament with your child than this handy 'rainbow' hack might just do the trick.

Recommended by Limerick hurling captain, Declan Hannon, it could have your kids gobbling up their greens in no time.

Hannon says that he follows the rule of the rainbow to maintain his balanced diet and it's also a great tip for parents and a good way to make eating fruit and vegetables exciting for children.

By creating a rainbow chart at home you and your child can have fun every day choosing healthy foods for each colour.

You don't have to use the same examples as above, in fact, you can change it up every day to create a varied palate of delicious foods.

The 'rainbow' rule is a great way to get small children involved in healthy food decisions and is definitely something that I'm going to start doing with my kids.
