Food with a wide array of vibrant colours tend to attract children these days, yes, they demand for a feast - both the tongue as well as the eyes in the table! 
Here are some secrets behind the colours of the eatable nature.....

Green Vs. Red Bell Peppers


Red peppers are usually aged green peppers. Chlorophyll masks red pigment in green peppers until the vegetable matures. Green peppers are typically cheaper and have fewer nutrients because of their shorter growing time. And red peppers do really taste strong than green peppers. 



Orange Vs. Red Carrots
