Is healthy food, my teacher said.
Broccoli, cabbage, asparagus, peas,
Squash and carrots prevent disease.
My cake is beige, which isn't right.
That has to change before I bite.
So, on my tasty spongy treat,
I add some Smarties, lined up neat.
A mix of orange, green and red.
That's healthy food.
My teacher said.
