The Kids in the Kitchen (KITK) initiative, supported by the Association of Junior League International, Inc., promotes child health and wellness by empowering children and youth to make healthy lifestyle choices, therefore preventing obesity and its associated health risks. The Junior League of Orange County, California’s KITK project is coordinated and executed by its Provisional members (members currently in their first year of training with the League.) The goals of a JLOCC hosted KITK event is to engage children in the preparation of healthy meals as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. Local community organizations, chefs and nutritionists partner with the JLOCC and its members to provide lessons and demonstrations related to preparation of healthy meals and snacks.
