This poem is intended to help encourage proper nutrition. Guardian Angel Publishing, the publisher of my Animal Sound Mix-up, has a section of books on Health & Hygiene that I hope you will check out here.
Eat your veggies, would you please?
Eat your corn and every bean,
Eat until your plate is clean.
Eating Veggies can be fun.
As you eat them, count each one.
See how many you can eat.
You can eat them with some meat.
Eat bananas, eat pineapples,
Eat good fruit, some grapes and apples,
Watermelon, orange, pear,
There's enough for you to share.
Fruits are such a tasty treat,
Some are crunchy, some are sweet.
God made fruits and veggies too.
All of them are good for you!
