I had great expectations for this book. I respect Dr Cooper and his work. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the book. There are 115 pages of nutriton related information mostly suggested menus and recipes - there are lots of good nutrition books for kids. The fitness evaluations were mostly for kids 10 and older. He recommends an active lifestyle and sports, but that's not worth the money to me. I'd say check this book out at the library for the fitness test information but keep your money in your pocket on this one.

The philosophy in this book about kid's fitness would help improve many school programs that fail to make kids fit or fail to make them love the activities that make them fit. The age descriptions are very valuable to help a parent decide what activities are age appropriate. The thoughts on team sports and how they turn many kids off in order to make the few achieve, should drive us all to help all kids be fit. The food portions I found to be very helpful. This book covers all ages from birth through high school, and team atheletes to video potatoes.
