Happy, happy, healthy kids,
Happy, happy, healthy!(X2)
We’re happy, happy, healthy kids,
It’s how we’d like to stay.
We eat nutritious, healthy food
At every meal each day.
We know that there are five food groups,
So, now we can’t go wrong;
’Cause we know what we must do
To grow up healthy, fit and strong.
Vitamins, minerals, good fats,
Help keep bodies healthy, so
Put good food on your plates.
Bodies are like fine machines,
eat the things we’re meant to.
Fruit is beaut, go use your loaf AND
Choose what you chomp into!
Do do do do, da da da.
Do do do do do...
Each day a little exercise, will help us play and learn;
There really is no better way For calories to burn!
Stop making excuses,
‘It’s much too cold’ or ‘Too hot’!
Move and groove and shake it up AND
Let’s give it our best shot!!
Do do do do, da da da
Do do do do do.
