Why grow and eat a rainbow? The dazzling colours of fruit and vegetables are given to them by a range of natural compounds which can be beneficial to health. In fact, research has shown that diets rich in these colourful crops may reduce the risk of a whole range of diseases, from heart disease to cancer. That’s why doctors and dietitians recommend we ‘Eat a Rainbow’. To help you on your way, we have researched hundreds of varieties to find those with the very highest levels of these nutrients.

James Wong has spent 2 years trawling through over 3,000 research papers to learn how to boost the nutrition in selected plants and has written a book called ‘How to Eat better’ which includes practical tips and tricks.
