Gatas at Itlog (Tulang Pambata)



Gatas at Itlog (Milk and Eggs) is actually a Filipino children's song, but in response to requests for a tula tungkol sa nutrisyon (poem about nutrition), we are posting it in this section with a rough English translation.



TAGALOG WORDS

Alagaan mo ang manok
Bibigyan ka ng itlog.

Ang gatas at ang itlog
Ay pagkaing pampalusog.
Ang saging at papaya
Ay pagkaing pampaganda.

Ikaw'y uminom ng gatas
At kumain ka ng itlog.
Hindi magtatagal
At ikaw'y bibilog.
ENGLISH TRANSLATION

Take care of the chicken
It'll give you eggs.

Milk and eggs
are nutritious foods.
Bananas and papayas
will make you pretty.

Drink milk
Eat eggs
You'll grow round
Before long.
