Hellooo everyone, your best friend Sara here! Here is a heartfelt prayer from 11 year old Hitansh Kedia from Kolkata towards a ‘minor’ change in our diets. What can I say? Amen!
Read with Sara: Poem-To those ugly vegetables!
If chocolates were healthy, and vegetables junk,
Healthy foods children would love to eat.
With bitter vegetables off our plates,
Every meal would be a treat.
We’d no longer hear our doctors say,
“You’re not getting enough protein.”
Or hear our mothers tell day and night,
“You need to change your diet routine!”
Carbohydrates and energy we’d have in plenty,
Getting our fibre from cotton candy.
And whenever we’d need some extra vitamins,
Some lollipops would come in handy.
Eating our dream meals every day,
We kids would smile with glee.
From all the vegetables that haunted us,
We’d finally be free!
I hope this happens,
And it happens fast.
To those ugly vegetables,
I’d say goodbye at last!
