Everything we eat each day,

Has a story to tell,

Before it ends up in a shop,

For somebody to sell!


Does milk come from a garden tap?

Please tell us, tell us now!

Don’t be silly, don’t you know,

That milk comes from a cow!

Does butter grow in plastic tubs,

Along with all the cheese?

Don’t be silly, don’t you know,

The cow produces these!


Where does it come from,

All the food we like to eat;

The things that keep us healthy

And the ones we save for treats?

Where do they come from,

Are they made or do they grow?

Please can you tell us,

'Cause we’d really like to know!
