Challenge your children to eat every colour of the rainbow by offering vegetables for every arc (except maybe blue!). Young ones may have room for only one pizza, but older kids or adults may want two. Have kids help in the assembly and make their own “rainbows.” We used an assortment of vegetables, but this will also work with vegetables that you have on hand. Or choose vegetables you think the kids will try. You'll need to double the Marinara Dipping Sauce recipe.
