Poems About Healthy Eating

for Children

By Josie Whitehead




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.
