61. An Apple a Day


An apple a day keeps the doctor away
Apple in the morning – Doctor’s warning
Roast apple at night – starves the doctor outright
Eat an apple going to bed – knock the doctor on the head
Three each day, seven days a week – ruddy apple, ruddy cheek

This rhyme encourages the young children to eat healthy and not indulge in junk food, the way the modern kids do!

Children usually love to eat sweet, soft and sticky food and thereby keep busy all the doctors and the dentists of the world. The children dislike to eat healthy vegetables and fruits.

In order to make children understand and remember, we have to catch them young and teach them young! This rhyme encourages them to eat raw fruits which are good for their body as well as their teeth.

The author and date of publication of this rhyme are not known!
