Why We Love It

There’s nothing that grabs and holds children’s attention quite like food, so we put together eight separate coloring pages, all about food!

Each page represents a category of food, and is filled to the brim with illustrations of different foods that fit in that category.

So whether you’re working on a nutrition lesson or simply want to foster conversations around food, these free printable pdfs are a fun visual aid to use with young children.
