With two highly professional, well-renowned contributors in the medical, psychology and children/youth fields, the co-authors of Be Fit, Be Strong, Be You provides kid-friendly tools healthy kids need: knowledge about exercise and nutrition for kids and self-care skills they can use to stay positive and focused.
