Here’s a poem I wrote for my daughter’s recitation competition at school. It’s very basic and kiddie, of course… but my attempt was to introduce the concept of what she needs to eat and what not. And of course, knowing her curious nature, I knew there would be lots of questions!! So now she knows quite a bit… Have a read…
‘My Food Pyramid’
I love my warm pink milk
Cheese is a favourite with my ilk
so is curd and butter
And all this really does matter!
Let me tell you about eating healthy
it does indeed make us wealthy
Servings of vegetables and fruits if 9
will keep us fit and fine
Eggs, nuts, chicken and fish
I love all these on my dish
With breads at the bottom and junk on the top (of the pyramid)
aerated drinks? No, not a drop!
Following this pyramid of food
is a practice that is good
On mumma’s watch I’m healthier
and also growing taller and prettier!
Thank you! 🙂
