Watch the video together. At snacks, meals, and in-between times, you can sing lines from the song.Children may not want to try new things the first time (or even the twentieth time!) but keep at it. It takes time. Encourage kids to try a small bite of new foods, and point out others’ choices (“Your older sister had to try okra thirteen times before she liked it, but look how much she likes it now!”).
Watch the video, then talk about how, without a healthy breakfast, Super Grover’s body didn’t have the super energy he needed! Explain that when we wake up in the morning, our energy tanks are empty. Breakfast gives our bodies the boost they need to grow, play, and learn each day.
Fruits, low-fat yogurt, or whole-grain bread and cereals are some healthy breakfast choices. For something creative, top a whole-wheat English muffin with low-fat mozzarella and tomato sauce to make breakfast pizza!
