Kids in the Kitchen
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.
Over 255 Leagues in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States conducted the Junior Leagues' Kids in the Kitchen program in their communities in 2007.
In addition to teaching children about healthy eating, the Junior League of Atlanta also added a reading component to its 2010 Kids in the Kitchen program which supports the League’s Major League Initiative of Early Childhood Education. Thanks to the support of the Belk Foundation, children in attendance at Kids in the Kitchen events in 2010 will also enjoy a reading by League volunteers of an age-appropriate book on healthy eating.
