FOOD SONGS & RHYMES
 

VEGETABLES
Tune:  “Jingle Bells”

Vegetables, vegetables,
Carrots, peas, tomatoes.
Oh, what fun it is to eat,
Zucchini, corn, potatoes!
                                Jean Warren

 
HEALTHY VEGETABLES
- A color Rhyme

Cut a tomato shape out of red felt, a zucchini shape out of green felt and a corn cob shape out of yellow felt. Place the shapes on a flannelboard as you read the following rhyme.

I ate a red tomato,
The biggest I have seen.
I ate a long zucchini,
It was the color green

I ate some yellow corn
That was sweet as sweet could be.
When I eat my colors,
I know I'm healthy!
Jean Warren

 
VEGETABLE RAINBOWS
There are many colored vegetables,
They are good for you.
Carrots are orange, let's eat a few.
Beans are green, let's try them, too.
Corn is yellow, tomatoes are red.
When you eat a rainbow,
You know you're well fed!
Gayle Bittinger
 
CARROTS FOR LUNCH
Out in the garden, under the sun.
Grew lots of carrots, so I picked some.
I took them inside and washed the whole bunch.
Then I sat down and ate them for my lunch.
Jean Warren
 
 
HUNGRY LITTLE CATERPILLAR
Hungry little caterpillar in the garden one day,
Ate one of everything, he saw on his way.
When he weighed himself, he weighed a ton.
He wondered why, when he only ate one!

MAKING STONE SOUP
Tune: “The Farmer In the Dell”

 
Let’s make stone soup,
Let’s make stone soup,
Put some water in a pot.
Stir, it’s getting hot.

First we add a stone.
Then we add a bone,
Stir the soup in the pot,
The soup is getting hot.

Then we add some broth,
Then we add some corn.
Stir the soup in the pot
The soup is getting hot.

Next, we add some carrots,
Then we add some peas.
Stir the soup in the pot
The soup is getting hot.

Last, we add potatoes,
Celery and zucchini.
Stir the soup, oh what fun.
The soup is now done!
Jean Warren

Have your children act out the song,
Pretending to toss the ingredients into a big pot as they sing.

WE ARE GREEN BEANS
Tune: “Mary Had A Little Lamb”

We are string beans, green and fine,
Green and fine, green and fine.
We are green beans, green and fine.
Growing on a leafy vine.

Continue with other vegetable verses; such as:
We are onions, round and white….we make soup taste just right.
We are carrots, orange and long…we can make you big and strong.
Etc.
