Food and Fitness Rap

Food and Fitness Rap

Five food groups for you and me
With a wide variety
Stay on top throughout the day
Energy to think and play
Five food groups for you and me
Help us grow up healthily

Listen to me and peel your eyes!
Food and Fitness – no surprise
It’s what you need for looking good
And feeling great, the way you should!


Starchy foods with every meal
Gives our bodies a balanced deal
Five fruit and veg are good to eat
Each kind is a special treat
Calcium helps bones grow strong
With dairy foods you can’t go wrong

Listen to me and peel your eyes!
Food and Fitness – no surprise
It’s what you need for looking good
And feeling great, the way you should!


Add protein foods like fish or meat
Remember to drink as well as eat
Sugary foods, choose just a few
Because they’re not the best for you
To top it off add exercise
A healthy body is your prize

Listen to me and peel your eyes!
Food and Fitness – no surprise
It’s what you need for looking good
And feeling great, the way you should

From the farm to the fridge, the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland acts on behalf of the dairy industry, promoting the natural goodness and quality of Northern Ireland milk and dairy products.

Our primary function is to communicate factual information to allow individuals to make well informed choices about dairy products that they consume and to inform them of the benefits of including dairy products in a balanced diet. We use a wide range of media, which includes television, radio, press, and social media. Our Advertising is complemented by public relations and promotional activities designed to communicate with specific groups.
