ALTON — Childhood obesity is a raging epidemic in every developed country.
The Junior League of Greater Alton is taking on that problem with Kids in the Kitchen, an event designed to teach elementary school children ages 4-12 how to prepare healthy snacks.
Kids in the Kitchen will be offered free at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 12, in Alton Memorial Hospital’s cafeteria meeting rooms. Space is limited, so call (800) 392-0936 to register. One caregiver is required to attend with each child in attendance.
Kids in the Kitchen provides a hands-on environment that actually focuses on preparing healthy foods. The goal is to promote child health and wellness by empowering children and youth to make healthy lifestyle choices, therefore preventing obesity and its associated health risks.
