Kids in the Kitchen





Kids in the Kitchen is a nationally recognized health education program that empowers youth to learn the preparation of healthy meals and educates them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy choices. In partnership with UnitedHealthcare and after-school providers, the JLD will work to impact the lives of area children for healthier lifestyles through a hands-on, interactive 8-week program to take place in the spring of 2014. Junior League of Dallas volunteers will work with non-profit agencies to engage youth in kindergarten through 5th grade during 3-hour sessions that include age-appropriate recipe preparation, fun exercise activities and take-home items including nutrition and fitness tips for the whole family.

Kids in the Kitchen was founded in 2006 and is supported by the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) and more than 250 Junior Leagues around the country. For information on AJLI and Kids in the Kitchen, click here.
