Kids In The Kitchen
Kids in the Kitchen (KITK) is an Association of Junior League International (AJLI) initiative that aims to educate kids and parents about the rising prevalence of childhood obesity in the US.
The initiative is grounded in the belief that children (and families) empowered with the knowledge of how to feed and exercise their bodies will be less likely to become obese and subsequently suffer many associated health risks.
Junior League of DeKalb County Involvement:
JLD provides lessons and demonstrations in the preparation of healthy meals and snacks in partnership with local organizations, chefs and nutritionists. JLD works with groups such as Tea Cup Girls, Atlanta Community Food Bank, and International Women's House to address hunger, fitness, gardening and life skills.
