Kids in the Kitchen (KITK) held a monthly lesson in October at Homeward Bound. The theme was Halloween and featured all Orange Foods. The kiddos learned about healthy and non-healthy orange foods as well as healthy Halloween treats. They learned how to peel a cutie orange and many of them even tried Hummus for the first time!
The goals of the KITK programs are to:
- Increase children’s awareness of the nutrition in everyday foods
- Improve the quality of healthy food that kids eat by showing them easy and tasty ways to eat better
- Increase the amount of exercise that kids do during their daily routine
The programs involve four exciting hands-on components to get kids and families involved in learning how to be healthy led by league and community volunteers.
