The Junior League has a heritage of placing a large emphasis on family nutrition. Kids in the Kitchen is a league-wide initiative that addresses a growing problem facing today’s children: the number of overweight children in our country is increasing, which also increases the risk of health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. On April 22nd, kids aged 4 thru 12 are invited to participate in a fun day focused on exercise, nutrition and overall health. There will be cooking demos, exercise demos and maybe even a tour of the garden with a real life farmer! Please join us, it will be fun for the whole family.

It was a day filled with fun, food, and fitness at Kids in the Kitchen! The annual event organized by The Junior League of the Palm Beaches took place on Saturday, April 23, 2016 and was hosted at the South Florida Science Center. Kids of all ages enjoyed exercise demos, cooking classes, a gardening exhibit, and all sorts of tips on how to live a happy, healthy life. More than 45 businesses provided education and entertainment to over 300 children
