10 Fun Food Songs for Kids

Need some new songs about food or cooking?

Some of these are funny, some are silly, and some are classic songs, but all of them are great for learning. 

Here are 10 fun food songs with lyrics and links to listen to the tunes.

1. Super Potato

This is one of my personal favourite food songs. It has a great, catchy tune and kids love it. It’s from the popular kids’ show Peppa Pig.

By the power of vegetables, I am here (Hurray!)
Fruit and vegetables keep us alive
Always remember to eat your five
Wiggle your hips and do our jive
Always remember to eat your five

One, two, three, four, five!

Runner beans and broccoli and cabbages are good for me
Mrs Carrot, little sprouts help to make me jump about
Even onions and courgette make me faster than a jet
They make me fit, they make me strong
Like Super Potato!

Fruit and vegetables keep us alive
Always remember to eat your five
Wiggle your hips and do our jive
Always remember to eat your five
One, two, three, four, five!

Apple and sweet cranberry, and oranges are good for me
Strawberry, tangerine, and fig will make me grow so strong and big

Banana, cherry, grape, and mango make me want to dance the tango
They make me fit, they make me strong
Like Super Potato!

Fruit and vegetables keep us alive
Always remember to eat your five
Wiggle your hips and do our jive
Always remember to eat your five

Super Potato, Super Potato
Did someone say my name?
I am on my way
Hurray!
