Catholic Prayer: Preschool Children's Grace Before and After Meals

Description:

From an early age it is important to encourage the practice of prayers in the daily routine, grace before and after meals included. These prayers can be recited by preschool-age children.

Children love forms. So you must say the Grace with great care and reverence, and with folded hands. In teaching these little prayers, recall the value of learning a little every day.

Prayer:

For children from the age of three, say Grace carefully before meals:

"Bless, dear Jesus, the food which You give me, and
please give some to all the children in the world."

After meals, say:

"Thank You, Jesus, for the good food You have given me."
