Lil - Song - I am Vegetarian

I am a Vegetarian

(sung in tune: "Old MacDonald Had a Farm”)

by Nimisha Asthagiri

This song allows children to recognize names of non-vegetarian food at school, parties, etc, so they know what to avoid. It also reminds them of the many tasty and delicious vegetarian options that are available at home and outside.

This song can be easily customized according to a family’s own diet (vegan, Jain, etc). Alternating between non-veg and veg stanzas adds variety and allows children to think of both the “nos” and the “yes-es”.

Activity idea: While singing together in a group, ask children to contribute names of vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.
