Eat Healthy, Grow Strong
By Jane Runyon
  

1     "Today we are going to talk about your future," began Mrs. Kim. "Who would like to tell me what you want to be when you grow up?"
 
2     "I want to work in a state park," answered Matthew.
 
3     "I want to be an actress," said Sally Jo.
 
4     "I want to play professional football," added C. J.
 
5     "I want to be a mom," said Maddie.
 
6     "We want to be teachers," answered the twins, Tim and Tom.
 
7     "I am sure that all of you have thought about many things you can do when you grow up," said Mrs. Kim. "And you can be just about anything you want to be. Growing up strong and healthy will help you to reach your goal."
 
8     "I'm already strong," said Josh. "I can lift my sister up off the ground."
 
9     "That's a good beginning," said Mrs. Kim. "But we have to make sure that everyone is just as healthy and as strong as they can possibly be."
 
10     "You're going to tell us how, aren't you, Mrs. Kim?" teased Mike.
 
11     "Let's just say I'm going to try to help you learn how to make some healthy choices," laughed Mrs. Kim. "One thing you need to remember is that how you eat can be just as important as what you eat."
