Fit Kids, Smarter Kids
by Jeff Galloway
This book is a guide for parents, teachers, youth leaders,
and anyone who wants to help kids become more active, and
make better food choices. Because much of the learning comes
from following an example, I’m asking that each parent
or leader make a commitment to regularly exercise. This will
not only show the kids you’re serious about the benefits.
Like the fit kids, you’ll improve your attitude and
vitality, you’ll also relieve stress, while statistically
extending your lifespan. Best of all—you’ll feel
The mission of this book is to give kids and adults the tools
to take control over their fitness, their nutrition, their
energy level and their attitude. The result is better control
over your life. You’ll find inside an explanation of
the processes that produce health and good nutrition, and
the endless stream of benefits that come to those who regularly
exercise and eat correctly.

Almost every child wants to move around, run, jump, exert
himself or herself, and glow from the exertion. If you’ve

This program is designed to help kids improve their current
attitude, energy level, health, and provide a strong basis
for success as adults. Whenever there is a decision about
the direction of the program the first question should be:
“Is this the best for the child”.
Fit kids have more fun
The exertion from fitness (even when the exercise is gentle)
energizes kids and adults and makes them more positive. Fun
just happens when kids engage in these activities.
Fit kids are more responsible kids
As kids make a contract with parents, teachers, leaders or
themselves, they start the process of being responsible people.
Fit kids eat good-tasting energizing food
In this book you’ll find a variety of foods, menu choices,
snacks, and other suggestions from highly acclaimed dietician
Positive reinforcement gets results.
Recognizing kids for their efforts and accomplishments tells
them that they are successful. Kids tend to do activities
where they can succeed. Parents and teachers can make this
happen every day.
