Eating today is not a simple little task,
But it’s easy if you know what questions to ask.
You’ve got to check carefully before you start to eat
To find out if the food is too fatty, salty, or sweet.
So be a fast food detective and you will go far.
Look on every menu, every box, and each jar.
Search very carefully for each little clue.
If there’s lots of sugar, salt, or fat,
You know what to do – Don’t eat it!
Just because something’s advertised on your TV
Doesn’t mean that a food’s all that it’s cracked up to be.
There may be some surprises waiting just inside.
Too much sugar, salt, or fat they’re trying to hide.
If you can’t read, then this is what you ought to do.
Just ask your Mom or Dad to read it for you.
Ask them to check the labels to see what is good.
So you’ll eat the best foods, just like you should.
