What are some easy mealtime prayers for young children?

I would like my children to learn to say a prayer before they eat.

When I was very young my parents taught me the following prayer before we ate: God is good. Good is great. Now we thank him for this food. Amen. I was saying that prayer when I was old enough to start speaking.

One common mealtime prayer for children is, "God is great, God is good, and we thank Him for our food. By His hands we are fed. Give us, Lord, our daily bread. Amen." You could also teach your child a basic pattern for mealtime (or anytime prayer) -- thanks, petition, thanks, amen.
