Quiz bee, poem-making contest, slogan-making contest, poster-making contest, timpaluto or cooking contest – these activities are always in whenever July is in front of the calendar. If you are a grade school or high school student, we won’t miss joining these contest every Nutrition Month. Oh I forget one thing that I always compete into – jingle-making contest! How I miss composing a nutrition-related jingle together with my high school and grade school classmates! And since I’m not on these stages of education anymore, I can’t join jingle-making contest and sing our written jingle onstage anymore. Instead, what I can do now is to share our jingles to students because I know that you are searching for ideas just like what we did when we had this contest. So I gave the lyrics and the tune and, uhm, to help you combine the lyrics and the tune, my recording. Sorry! I know there is something wrong about the recordings. Ugh, nevermind!
In the tune of Up All Night by One Direction
Wala ka nang hahanapin pang iba, dito’y kumpleto na
Mayaman sa bitamina ang gulay, siksik sa sustansyaAndyan din ang fiber, calcium at mineral
Ito’y tumutulong sa ating katawan
Kaya ating ugaliin itong kainin
Ang gulay ay kailangan, hey!
Kailangan ng katawan
In the tune of Sana by Gagong Rapper
Sana lahat ng kabataa’y
Kumakain ng gulay
Ikaw ay kasama, tayong dalawa
Lulusog at sasaya, sana. Sana
In tune of Mahal Kita Pero by Janella Salvador
Mahal ang prutas pero
Mahal ang gulay pero
Mahal ang grano, pero, pero pero,
Di healthy ang soda
Pati ang tsitsirya
Umiwas tayo sa mga prinito
In the tune of Gaan na Gusto ko by Mcoy Fundales
Gulay lang ang aming gusto,
Oh gulay lang!
Lahat tayo’y kumain nito,
Oh gulay lang!
