Poems About Healthy Eating

for Children

By Josie Whitehead

Oranges

YOU'LL NEVER

HEAR AN ORANGE SNEEZE

By Josie Whitehead

You'll Never Hear an Orange Sneeze

You’ll never hear an orange sneeze.

     It doesn’t catch a cold.

They’re full of Vitamin C of course,

     Which protects us, we are told.

 

Now a cod’s a really lucky fish,

     Packed with Omega 3,

So a cod won’t get arthritis -

     Quite unlike poor old me.

 

Salmon’s not just good to eat

     But makes our brains work well.

A salmon would write poetry

     If only he could spell.

 

Apples help to keep you young -

     They’ve antioxidants inside,

Perhaps they also would stay young

     If apples could but hide.

 

Fruit is important to our health -

     Eat five fruits every day -

Then you’ll be fit and healthy

     And that’s exactly how you’ll stay.
