The Kids Cook Monday initiative encourages families to set aside the first night of every week for cooking and eating together as a family. The Kids Cook Monday provides examples of family friendly recipes and video demonstrations along with a free starter family dinner toolkit- making it easy for families to cook and eat together every Monday.

Rainbow Plate is on a mission to make healthy eating simple and fun. Rainbow Plate’s joyful, sensory-based approach uses rainbows of vibrant real food to spark children’s imaginations, change behavior and cultivate lifelong healthy eating habits with our Rainbow Food Explorers Educator Toolkit.
The Rainbow Food Explorers Educator Toolkit captures Rainbow Plate’s core principles and joyful, evidence-based approach to food education. It translates the experience gained from years of work with thousands of children into simple educational resources and practical, fun activities for educators, health professionals and anyone who works in any early years setting. It is a durable and colourful binder packed with content, including a rainbow of 30 fruit and vegetable sensory exploration cards. It has been designed as a flexible and adaptable resource to enable anyone to easily weave our colourful, sensory-based approach to food literacy throughout experiences with early learners in a wide variety of settings.
