Buzz Ballad: Give the Kids a Ritz

"Manitoba Mom Gives Kids Homemade Lunch, School Forces Them to Eat Ritz Crackers"

---News item


Give the Kids a Ritz!

---apologies to Irving Berlin and "Puttin' on the Ritz"

Have you seen what the staff did

With their group of daycare kids?

Their panties got in a bunch

Over what kids brought for lunch!

They found roast beef and carrots

To have insufficient merit

And instead complained

'Cause there wasn't a grain!

If you're sending your kids over

To daycare in Manitoba

Avoid staff fits

Have kids bring a Ritz!

Don't you even think to try for

Any other source of fiber

They'll insist

Have kids bring a Ritz!

Lest children become fat or distended

They'll stick to what government recommended

And defend it

So be forewarned when you pack lunches

Never follow your own hunches

When choosing bits---

Give the kids a Ritz!
