Pupils at St Francis Catholic Primary School in Myers Lane, Bradford, are enjoying colourful food this week.

Youngsters are taking part in Baco Rainbow Week – which asks children to eat foods from a particular colour group during each day in order to boost healthy eating.

Eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day is widely known to have positive health benefits, but research has shown that, on average, children in England eat only two portions a day.

Monday, indigo day, saw pupils eat raisins, purple grapes and plums; Tuesday, red day, featured strawberries, red peppers, tomatoes and red apples; and today is yellow day and will see bananas, pineapple and honeydew melon.

Thursday is green day and students will enjoy grapes, lettuce, cucumber, celery, peas and green peppers. The week ends with Friday’s orange day.
