Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

You are what you eat.
A lot of foods aren’t good for you;
be careful what you choose to eat.
Beware of breakfast cereals;
be careful that it’s not too sweet.

There’s lots of sugar in those foods;
with too much sugar, you gain weight.
Tony the Tiger—Frosted Flakes;
overweight is not so great.

But fruits and vegetables are good;
they’re packed with nutrients for health.
They’ll make you grow up big and strong;
and being healthy is pure wealth.

Those candy bars are sweet of course;
a Baby Ruth can make eyes glow.
You may object to broccoli,
yet it can help your body grow.

Eat lots of protein for good health;
eggs, chicken, meat, cheese cottage cup.
Three meals a day for balance sake—
a healthy you when you grow up.

Eat healthy so you can compete;
you truly are the foods you eat.
