Well, we’re starting a new week of this year-long project to match a song to a FACS concept every week day for a whole year. As you may have noticed, I’m trying out a new name for this challenge. I don’t know why, be giving a title to whatever I’m working on is very important to me. Any feedback on the title would be appreciated. I’ve also thought about calling it the FACS Playlist. What do you think?
Anyway, we’re still talking about eating healthy and getting in shape, so in keeping with that theme, today’s song is Healthy Foods from Sesame Street. The Sesame Street gang is bound to grab your kid’s attention, so give this a try.
Well, me known for eating cookie, When me don’t, they shout, "Look, he trying to throw loyal fans a curve! What he doing eating fish, Or vegetable dish? Man, he sure got a lot of nerve!"
Well, me answer you straight, When me filling up plate, Taking only cookies is all wrong! ‘Cause you also got to eat Fruit or veggies and meat If you want to be healthy and strong!
Healthy food! Boy, it taste so good. Me one healthy dude ‘Cause me eat healthy food. Me love it boiled or stewed, Me love it whole or chewed. You’d feel just great if you’d Eat some healthy food!
Me promise that when you eat varied menu, You get more out of every meal. You need balanced diet, Come on and try it! Not believe how great you’ll feel!
Munch some carrots or beans Or poultry or greens, Along with your chocolate chip. And banana or plum Will make you go, "Yum!" Nutrition— it really hip!
( repeat chorus )
There broiled spring chicken, Grapes ripe for picking, And swordfish, tuna and trout. And apple and cherry, And all kinds of berry, And broccoli and Brussel sprout!
There lettuce, tomato, Boiled new potato, There spinach and celery and beet. Milk and honey and cheese, Peanuts, peppers, and peas, Pears and peaches and cream of wheat!
( repeat chorus twice )
Till tomorrow! Have a Rockin’ FACS Day!
