Tweens Can Take Charge of Their Health with New Book "Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You"

"Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You" provides kid-friendly tools healthy kids need: knowledge about exercise and nutrition and self-care skills they can use to stay positive and focused.

Minneapolis, MN (Vocus) April 21, 2010 -- What can tweens do to make fitness and wholesome eating easier and part of their daily lives? Plenty. They have the power to be the boss of their bodies and take charge of their own health and wellness. That’s what "Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You" is all about.

Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You by Rebecca Kajander, C.P.N.P., M.P.H., and Timothy Culbert, M.D. (Free Spirit Publishing, $9.99) provides easy-to-use tools healthy kids need to learn effective self-care skills to take control of their fitness and diet while developing positive self-esteem. Whether they are underweight, overweight, or just the right weight, this book shows kids how to take a positive, holistic approach to their well-being.

Part of the award-winning Be the Boss of Your Body® series, "Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You" includes helpful information on planning meals and healthy on-the-go snacks, food journaling, building exercise into the day, and using affirmations. These are accompanied by self-care skills such as belly breathing, positive imagery, aromatherapy, acupressure, and yoga.

"Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You" helps kids:

  • learn how the right food can help them be healthy
  • find the healthiest weight for their bodies
  • increase their self-confidence
  • feel better for school, sports, hobbies, and other activities
  • look their best
  • discover fun ways to be active
A note to grown-ups at the back of the book includes information for adults on supporting and encouraging healthy choices, recommendations for eating, physical activity, screen time, and more.

No matter how healthy kids are now, they can do more to help themselves and take charge of their health and wellness.
