Parke Wilde is a food economist who writes an interesting blog about U.S. food policy. He recently wrote about some good children's songs with nutrition themes, including tunes by Wayne from Maine and Steve Roslonek.
It got me thinking about what my favorite food related children's song is...and it's got to be Peanut Butter and Jelly. This one, not this one. Surprisingly though, it took me a long time to think of even one food/nutrition related song. What am I forgetting?
Update: People who grew up in the U.S. in the 70's/early 80's might remember the "Time for Timer" mini-cartoons they played in between the Saturday morning cartoons. He was always talking/singing about nutrition...my favorite was "You are what you eat" in which he took us on a tour of the stomach. You can view some of his clips at Scott-o-rama. They are not exactly sing-a-longs, but they sure do bring back memories of camping in front of the TV on Saturday mornings eating 12 bowls of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs.
