Junior League works with Wynnton Elementary Magnet Academy to start Kids in the Kitchen

The Junior League of Columbus (JLC) is working to educate local students about obesity, and are teaming with Wynnton Elementary Magnet Academy the for Kids in the Kitchen program.

Junior League volunteers are working with parents and children to educate them to help make healthy eating decisions.

Kids in the Kitchen will be at 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. April 1 in the Fellowship Hall of Wynnton United Methodist Church, 2412 Wynnton Road. League members and participating children will team up to cook a healthy lunch together. They will also teach the children the importance of eating right and exercising.

Kids in the Kitchen is a national initiative for Junior League chapters across America. They hope the program will help children avoid the risks of being overweight, which include Type II diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
