Heleen sent this song with the note: "Our kids learned this one both at daycare as in school, and they sing it just before lunch (or any other meal - we introduced it at home, too!)."

This song is sung to the tune of Frère Jacques.

Notes

*"There must be an English word for it but I don't remember: 'hap' you say to the movement the mouth makes when one starts to eat; 'slok' is the movement and the sound you make/hear when you drink/swallow the liquid - I hope you know what I mean!?!)

Andrea Goris sent this version below that they sing in her daughter's preschool in Holland:

Andrea wrote: "My daughters favourite (song) is for food and drink, sing it to fraro roche:"

Smakelijk eten, smakelijk drinken,
Hap, Hap, Hap
slok slok slok
dat zal lekker smaken
dat zal lekker smaken
hap hap hap
slok slok slok
EET SMAKELIJK

Translation:

Enjoy your meal, enjoy your drink,
Chomp, chomp, chomp,
Glug, glug, glug,
That will taste good,
That will taste good!
Chomp, chomp, chomp,
Glug, glug, glug,
Enjoy your meal!
