Go You Chicken Fat Go!

When I was in first grade, my entire school would start off the day doing an exercise routine called, "Chicken Fat." This is a catchy tune sung by Robert Preston (of The Music Man) that lasts for 6 minutes. A few years ago, I was wondering if the music still existed, so I googled it. I wasn't the only child who remembered shouting, "Go you chicken fat, go!"
I learned that President Kennedy was concerned about the climbing obesity rates for our nation, so he commissioned this song/exercise for America's schoolchildren.
My children enjoy the exercise as much as I did. To hear the song, click here. To read the lyrics, click here.

Have fun! Many blessings ~ Kathie
