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.

Smakelijk eten
Enjoy Your Meal!
Children's Song
(Dutch)
Children's Song
(English)

Smakelijk eten, smakelijk drinken
Hap, hap, hap, slok, slok, slok*
Dat zal lekker smaken! dat zal lekker smaken!
Eet maar op, drink maar op.
Eet smakelijk allemaal!

Enjoy your meal, enjoy your drink,
Chomp, chomp, chomp, glug, glug, glug,
That will taste good, that will taste good!
So eat it, so drink it.
Enjoy your meal!

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!
