13. MISSION NUTRITION
(Ron Hiller/RONNO, Judy Millar

Intro: Hey, everybody, we’re taking off on MISSION NUTRITION!
Climb aboard the space shuttle - and buckle up, astronauts!
10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1- Blast Off!

10 is for a HEALTHY BREAKFAST
Fuel for the day
Cereal with fruit and milk
It helps us on our way
Whole-grain breads, cheese and fruit
Energize us too
We’ll eat a balanced breakfast
So we can make it through

Chorus 1:
MISSION NUTRITION
Oh, oh, oh
MISSION NUTRITION
10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1
(Blast off!)

9 is for your FLUID INTAKE
Water, milk and juice
Water is a super fuel
It’s the drink we choose
When we’re feeling tired
When we’re feeling hot
Our bodies need hydration
We need to drink a lot!

REPEAT CHORUS 1
8 is for your SNACKING CHOICES
Make them good for you!
Yogurt, berries, seeds, and nuts
They all taste good too
Sweet desserts and salty snacks
Sometimes they’re OK
But astronauts make healthy choices
Every single day
REPEAT CHORUS 1

7 is for PORTION SIZE –
Keep your eye on that!
Too many extra helpings
Make a body fat;
One less slice of pizza
One less can of pop
Helps you to keep lean and trim
You know when to stop

REPEAT CHORUS 1

6 is for NUTRITIOUS LUNCHES
You can help prepare
Choose a veggie, fruit and wholegrain –
Always have some there;
Don’t forget some protein
Keep the fat count low
Add some milk for calcium
And then you’re good to go!

CHORUS 2:
MISSION NUTRITION
Oh, oh, oh
MISSION NUTRITION
Whoa, oh, oh
MISSION NUTRITION
Oh, oh, oh
MISSION NUTRITION
10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1
Blast off!

5 is for THE FOOD GROUPS
You know what they are!
You put them in your healthy lunch
So you could get this far
4 is for VARIETY
Why eat the same old thing?
Try apricots or kiwifruit
Give your life some zing!

REPEAT CHORUS 1

3 is for your SHOPPING SMARTS
In the grocery store
Choose the fresh food if you can
Nutrients galore!
2 is for your FAST FOOD CHOICES
When you’re on the go
Grab a big banana
Energy to go! – WHOA!!

REPEAT CHORUS 1

1 is for the HEALTHY KID
You are going to be
When you eat right and exercise
Now just follow me:

REPEAT CHORUS 2

(MISSION NUTRITION, we have lift-off!
MISSION NUTRITION is on its way!)
