Body image is how we see and feel about our bodies. Aside from their weight or size, children can develop either a positive or negative view of their bodies. These views can begin as early as preschool, so parents need to be positive role models in promoting body image for children.
Positive body image can come from feeling fit, strong and capable. Children and teens need regular physical activities that they enjoy. FitGirls encourages girls to build physical strength and confidence in a safe and supportive environment promoting positive body image.
