Kids In The Kitchen
Introducing…Kids in the Kitchen!
Beginning in 2012, the Junior League of Waco will join over 200 Junior Leagues across the world as we introduce the Kids in the Kitchen initiative to our community. The focus of this program is to empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and help reverse the growth of childhood obesity and its associated health issues.
During this program, the Junior League of Waco will be partnering with Alta Vista Elementary School as well as various local 5K races. Activities at Alta Vista will include supporting Jump Rope for Heart, an American Heart Association program, to provide volunteers to assist at the events as well as jump ropes and pedometers for the students. In addition, project activities will include lessons and demonstrations to engage kids in the preparation of meals as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy choices.
