“It’s important to eat an array of colorful rainbow real foods.”
– Dr. Greene, Eat REAL’s Chief Pediatrician

The Challenge

“Rainbow” has taken on new meaning for families under quarantine due to coronavirus, and has become a sign of hope and that we are all in this together. Kids are joining in the #covidrainbow movement, creating and posting rainbows in windows and on social media.

#RainbowTacoChallenge takes the rainbow movement into the kitchen, connecting people through food and fun. Why?  Because a nutritious diet, filled with an array of colorful veggies, fruits, and whole grains is one of the best ways to support our immune systems. And, because we can all use some inspiration and new ideas for simple and healthy meals that we can make together…while still being apart.

The #RainbowTacoChallenge kicked off on Taco Tuesday, April 14, with a takeover by some of your favorite chefs, artists, and athletes.  Everyone has been sharing their “go-to” Taco recipes based on what they have on hand in their kitchen. Proceeds go towards helping schools distribute nutritious meals to low-income—and suddenly no-income—families and students who increasingly depend on these meals via school pickup or delivery.

Please join in the fun on Instagram: instagram.com/eatrealcertified.

We’d love to have you participate and challenge your friends to get involved. It’s as easy as posting a quick Instagram video or story with the hashtag #RainbowTacoChallenge and tagging @eatrealcertified.

Back-to-school time always results in uncertainty and stress, but the 2020-21 school year reflects a fundamental shift in the challenges parents and children face. With remote learning and ongoing economic issues, more kids are hungry in America. Our food service professionals, who serve children and families five days a week, know how important their work is in the healing of our nation. Listening to their top concerns and lifting up these important workers can help us build a strong foundation for the next generation.
