Kids in the Kitchen is an Association-wide initiative of The Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) designed to help communities address the urgent issues surrounding childhood obesity and poor nutrition. In 2006, the Junior League of San Angelo joined the AJLI initiative, and launched its first Kids in the Kitchen. It is our goal to help address the rapid rise of childhood obesity, by combining our efforts with community partners, to bring recipes and nutrition tips to children and their families. The Association of Junior Leagues International provides guidelines and materials to support the success of these educational and motivational activities and supports the program with a website, http://www.kidsinthekitchen.org/.
Junior Leagues' Kids in the Kitchen spokesperson and former Food Network chef, George Stella, appeared on May 17 on the national FOX show, "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet." http://wwwyoutube.com/watch?v=sqDBcRdDur0
