Over the food mum serves we fuss,
And then the varieties we discuss.
Be thankful for every morsel,
The situation of others is awful.

Enjoy every bite you eat,
Be it rice, wheat or meat.
Hold on there!
Don’t gobble up, you have no train to catch!
Don’t let the soup go cold, you have no egg to hatch!

There is ample that nature gives.
Waste it not, provide it, it can save lives.
Don’t have it in excess,
Nobody has ever died by eating less.

A scrumptious delight awaits you,
Yes, its true!
It’s the food on your table,
Eat and serve all that you are able.
