KIDS IN THE KITCHEN (KITK)
The goal of the Junior Leagues’ Kids in the Kitchen initiative, which is supported by the Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. and its member Leagues, is to empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and help reverse the growth of childhood obesity and its associated health issues. The events provide lessons and demonstrations related to preparation of healthy meals and snacks that are both tasty and affordable. The Junior League of Alexandria conducts the education program in partnership with other community organizations in order to raise awareness and provide solutions for this growing problem.
The Association of Junior Leagues International provide materials to support the success of these activities and also distributes recipes and tips on fitness and nutrition at http://kidsinthekitchen.ajli.org.
