Here are some government approved songs you can sing with your kids at Christmas

 Here's a way to spend government approved time with your kids by singing and dancing to government approved songs.

The Agriculture Department has created some videos that feature some catchy tunes guaranteed to bore your kids to death. But hey! They're 100%, USDA prime songs that will get your kids off the couch and dancing like fiends.

USDA's MyPlate division provided a link to several videos and songs people can play online to lighten up any holiday gathering with family and friends.

Stay active with kids if you're stuck inside by singing and dancing to the MyPlate Food Groups songs!https://t.co/W8xtwWu1i4— ChooseMyPlate.gov (@MyPlate) December 21, 2015

One of the songs is "Alive With Five Groups," which lets kids jump around and sing about the five food groups.

"A banana is a fruit, broccoli is a veggie, rice is a grain, chicken is a protein," the song instructs. "Milk is dairy, and now we got five. We're gonna feel our best, we're gonna feel alive."

Another, "Do Your Body Right," says you'll "make your day a better day" if you "eat foods in a smarter way." Among other things, the song encourages people not to eat sugary cereals.

A third song called "Do and Be" says "nutrients are good for me, some help me do and some help me be."

None of the songs are very long, however, which leaves open the chance you might still be bored. In that case, USDA recommends a push-up contest with the kids.

Looking for family-friendly indoor activities? Have a push-up contest with the kids. They'll learn that being active is fun. #LetsMove— ChooseMyPlate.gov (@MyPlate) December 22, 2015

Drop and give me twenty, kids.

I can't think of anything more "fun" than that, can you? Well, maybe competitive pull-ups would be more exciting.

Who dreams up this idiocy? The same people who created Michelle Obama's school lunch fiasco, no doubt.
