Songs, Chants and Fingerplays


Songs, chants, and finger plays can be incorporated into nutrition education activities to reinforce and introduce basic nutrition concepts. Songs are fun and encourage children to be active participants in the learning activity at hand. They also serve as great memory aids and learning tools to help children build
knowledge and vocabulary.


Nutrition songs can be used before meal time and before or after a cooking or gardening activity to introduce or reinforce basic nutrition concepts. This song list has been broken up into seven different categories as listed below. Choose a song from one of these categories that connects with the activity at hand. For example, if you are making orange juice sing a song about oranges.
