Стихи о продуктах питания, молочных продуктах, хлебе, фруктах, мясе и курице и овощах
Dairy products are food from the farm
That came from pasture and coop;
Milk from cows and eggs from hens
Are part of the dairy group.
We eat our eggs cooked soft or hard,
Scrambled, poached, or steamed;
From milk we make our cottage cheese,
Our yogurt, and ice cream.
Bread and Cereals
Breads and cereals start from seeds
Of grasses farmers grow;
They\’re all ground up and mixed with eggs
And other flavors for dough.
The crust of pies and dinner rolls,
And noodles of chicken soup,
Doughnuts, spaghetti, and Cream of Wheat
Are in the bread and cereals group.
Meat, Poultry, and Seafood
Cows and pigs and sheep make up
The mammals that we eat.
Spare ribs, steak, or hamburgers,
We call this cooked food «meat».
«Poultry» refers to birds we eat,
Like chicken, duck, and turkey.
«Seafood» is fish and other things
That swim in water murky.
Vegetables and Fruits
The food we like to eat that grows
On vines and bushes and trees
Are vegetables and fruits, my friend,
Like cherries, grapes, and peas.
Apples and oranges and peaches are fruits,
And so are tangerines.
Lettuce and carrots are vegetables,
Like squash and lima beans.
