What does "fitness" look like to you? Does it mean being able to do 25 sit-ups? Eating vegetables with dinner? Being thin like a supermodel, or having muscles like an athlete?
Many kids think that eating and exercise are the two most important things that make a person fit. But there's more to fitness. Being fit also means taking care of how you feel so you can deal with your problems and not worry a lot. Being fit means getting enough rest so your body keeps working.
Sometimes it isn't easy to pay attention to all four parts of the FIT Platform -- MOVE, FOOD, RECHARGE, and MOOD -- all the time. You have school and activities and chores and friends. That means good health habits might not seem so important, but they really are!
