    I am kind of a picky eater. I like chicken nuggets and jelly beans! But candy and nuggets aren't very healthy. I am trying to eat more fruit. Apples are a sweet, healthy choice. Apples give me energy to dance!

    Hi, I'm Alex! I am tall and a big boy. Sometimes the other kids call me "fatty." I don't like being teased. It makes me mad, and sometimes I cry. Talking to my mom helps me feel better.

    I love superhero video games! Mom says I need to get up and move and play more. To move more, I pretend I am a superhero and run and play in my yard.

    I don't like going to bed! I want to keep playing! To help me calm down from playing, I look at books with Mom. Sleep gives me energy to play tomorrow.

    I love basketball! One day I am going to be a famous basketball player! I'm super-fast! While my friends are inside watching TV, I'm outside working on my speed. I love it when my friends turn off the TV and come outside and run and play with me!

    I like to play and be busy. So I need to rest and relax, too. Relaxing is healthy. Relaxing gives my body the rest it needs to be strong. I like to read to relax.
