Story

If you ever have children, you will be exposed to children's music. My daughter loved Rafi. Listening to Rafi made me want to try my hand at writing a children's song. This song was the result. It has since been played at the National Rural Health Association Annual Meeting in Miami Florida in May 2009. The song has also been used also used on a educational DVD and CD for the Area Health Education Couucil's Growing Up Fit Together program geared towards educating Louisiana 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders to eat healthy and exercise.

Lyrics

Fruits and Veggies

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies everyday

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies

For a healthy heart they’ll help you start your way

 

Watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes and oranges

Apples, peaches, pears, and honey dews

Blueberries, cranberries,

Bananas, grapefruit, plums and cherries

All these fruits are good for me and you

 

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies…

 

Eggplant, zucchini squash, celery and corn

Spinach, carrots, beets and broccoli

Cucumber, cauliflower,

Asparagus and avocados

Veggies are so good for you and me

 

You gotta eat your fruits and veggies…
