Food Coloring Pages -- Healthy Eating

Updated on October 23, 2014

Food Coloring Pages

These food coloring pages will help children learn about healthy eating while having fun. For more fun, let the kids munch on an apple while coloring.

The new food plate emphasizes healthy eating and makes it clear to see what food to eat. These food coloring pages can reinforce that important message.

Use these coloring pages to introduce new foods to children, which can help them try new foods and like them!

Eating Breakfast is Important

Start the day right

Teach children the importance of eating a healthy breakfast by comparing it to adding fuel to the car. Without fuel, the car won't go. Without food, we won't go.

We sleep all night, so when we wake up, our bodies need food to get us going. Our brain needs food as well as our body. Some good ideas for breakfast follow:

- whole grain cereal with milk

- toast with peanut butter

- yogurt and fruit

- eggs and toast

Try out a variety of foods to see what your child likes. Offer a small amount of new foods at first and eat the good for you food yourself.

      Sometimes its a little hard to get kids to eat healthy but I'd say put out some nutritious foods at coloring time and let them munch on what they're coloring....could be a way to get them started on new tastes that they'll associate with coloring fun! :)

      Great idea! It is very important to teach children about eating healthy from a very young age before they get into eating habits that are nearly impossible to get rid of.

      I like the idea of coloring pages instead of a whole book because my grandkids ALWAYS want to rip a bunch of pages out of the book, anyway. :)
