(LISTEN to song audio sample in Preview at the top of this page)
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, Proteins, carbohydrates,
Help keep bodies healthy, so
Put good food on your plates.
Bodies are like fine machines,
let’s 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...
