Several of the classrooms I am work within are studying the 5 food groups this month and talking about energy, balanced diet, etc. (as a way to lead right into the Thanksgiving feast, I'm sure!).

I wrote this song as an introduction to a five food groups unit. I also have separate songs about each food group. If you haven't checked it out yet, go to the Dole website (here) and (among others), listen to their fruits and vegetable song, "SuperKids Song". It's hip, fun, and can be appropriate for elementary through high school age classes to sing!

Apples, Oranges, Corn and Broccoli,
Food is good for you and me!
Milk and Eggs, Yogurt and Cheese,
Food is good for you and me!

Food is made up of nutrients that help
our bodies to grow.
Food gives us energy everyday to get up, and go!

(Repeat Chorus)

*I hope you are having a great weekend and looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday coming up! I'm looking forward to a few days off!
