Health Songs for Kids

Health Songs for Kids

Healthy habits are important to form early in life. We want to encourage kids to make good choices that will improve their health for a lifetime. Music, movement, and dancing are fun ways to help them learn. The songs listed below highlight a variety of ways kids can live healthy lives, from good dental care to learn about their bodies, exercise, and good health practices.

“This Is The Way We Brush Our Teeth”

From Little Baby Bum, this song is a fun way to learn how to brush your teeth. Plus, it reminds you that it’s important to brush twice a day, which means you’ll have a sparkling smile and great dental health. Set to “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush,” the familiar tune makes this catchy tune easy to remember.

“If You Think You’re Going to Sneeze”

Set to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It,” this tune will help kids remember what to do when you sneeze. Since scientists recently released a study that said sneeze droplets could travel as far away as 19 to 26 feet away from the sneeze.  Making sure to cover your mouth and wash your hands is key to staying healthy!

“Yummy Vegetables”

For younger kids, this fun listing song will help kids learn the names of different vegetables-all while celebrating the yumminess of vegetables of every shape, size, and color. We guarantee you’ll listen to this one more than once!

10 Fun Songs About Body Parts

A fun way to start teaching younger children about their bodies, these songs invite movement and activity while teaching kids about their noses, toes, hands, and feet. This awesome collection includes songs like “It’s Time to Wiggle” and “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”.

Teeth and Dental Health Songs

Dental health is about more than just brushing your teeth. Flossing is important, too! Flossing can help prevent cavities and gum disease so it’s important to make it a part of your dental care regimen even when you’re young. These musical numbers will have you singing into your toothbrush.

“Eat Like a Rainbow”

Healthy eating involves choosing from a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. To achieve maximum health and strong bodies, bones, and teeth, experts say we should “eat the rainbow.” This means choosing different kinds of brightly colored whole fruits and veggies every day. In this catchy title song from his Parent’s Choice award-winning album, Jay Mankita encourages us to do just that.

“Germ Attack!”

Do you like superheroes? Want to fight back against germs, sickness, and the flu? Learn to cover your mouth and nose with your arm and cough or sneeze into your elbow. This song is a lot of fun, so be sure to develop your own dance moves!

Music and Songs: Dental Health

Lost a tooth? Celebrate your missing teeth with the song, “There’s a Hole in My Mouth”. It may be hard to get these catchy dental health songs out of your head‚ unlike those teeth you lost!

“One Finger, One Thumb (Keep Moving)”

This song will help kids learn about different parts of their bodies, like fingers, thumb, arms, legs, head, and more set to fun choreography. Developing healthy habits early in your life, like being active, will improve your health throughout your lifetime.

Using Hand Washing Song to Encourage Hygiene

Experts say we need to wash our hands for 20 seconds to make sure they’re clean and germ-free. It takes about 20 seconds to sing through “Happy Birthday” twice, which is why the World Health Organization suggests singing the song through a couple of times while washing your hands. You can also choose any of the songs on this list to guarantee your 20 seconds of washing.

Body Parts Songs and Music

It’s an oldie, but there’s a good reason people have been singing the “Hokey Pokey” for decades.  This song along with the others on this list allow kids to move around, learn left from right, and learn about a variety of body parts, like hands, feet, legs, and arms. It’s a fun way to get a little exercise while singing!

“Brushy Brush”

Younger kids will love to learn the ins and outs of brushing their teeth with Elmo from “Sesame Street”. This video features Elmo, along with a few celebrity friends, teaching us all about good dental care.

“Healthy Choices”

Want to learn about food groups and have fun at the same time? Learn this song, set to the tune of “Where Is Thumbkin?” Make it more interactive by using pictures of fruits, dairy, vegetables, proteins, grains, and treats. Or take it one step further and make up motions for each of the food groups. Then, you’re getting a little exercise while learning about making healthy choices. That’s a great example of making choices that will help you achieve the best health possible!  Some people don’t make the healthy choice of going to the dentist because they’re scared.  Doctors and Alexandria sedation dentists have many ways of helping people who are a little scared make healthy choices.

“Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”

You probably think you know this song already, but wait a minute! Washing your hands is an important and easy way to wash away germs and keep from getting sick. Sometimes, to make sure you’ve washed your hands long enough, it helps to sing this song a couple of times. This version of the familiar favorite will help you to remember to use soap and water, and scrub your hands!

Hand Washing Songs

These songs presented by “Just in Case Arizona” will remind you to wash your hands well.  These are especially important during flu season!

“Healthy Food”

Like the Cookie Monster, we all love a treat every once in a while, but good nutrition is about eating lots of different kinds of foods, including veggies, fish, berries, fruits, and more! In this “Sesame Street” favorite, the Cookie Monster teaches about the joys of eating healthy food.

Hand Washing Songs and Rhymes

These songs will help you have fun with hygiene! The videos feature songs like “Wash ‘Em”, “Washy Washy Clean,” and, “Rubba Dub Dub.”

“Apples and Bananas”

This familiar children’s song is a fun way to get kids thinking about fruits and healthy eating choices, while also allowing them to explore the different phonetic sounds vowels make. You get to sing, have fun, and learn a little! What’s not to like about that?

“The Smile Song”

Your smile is important. Alexandria cosmetic dentistry and dentists around the country help kids have healthy smiles. Even if this song isn’t specifically about dental health, it’s still about the beauty of a sparkling smile. Plus, it will remind you to smile which helps us to feel better when things aren’t going as planned! Emotional health is just as important as physical health.

“Food Keeps You Healthy”

This song will be stuck in your head for awhile which is good because it’s a great reminder that the foods you eat, fuel the life you live. While an occasional treat like chocolate and pie are fine, it’s a wide variety of fruits, veggies, and protein that help you go, go, go!

Eat Your Vegetables Song

Do you love veggies?  Celebrate them with the lyrics to this song.  You can look up Little Baby Bum on YouTube and sing along.
