The Junior League of McAllen
The goal of the Kids in the Kitchen initiative, which is supported by the Association of Junior Leagues International, is to empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and help reverse the growth of childhood obesity and its associated health issues. Inspired by the Junior League of Calgary's Junior Chefs program, the Kids in the Kitchen initiative began in 2006 with the goal of engaging kids in the preparation of healthy meals as a means to educate them and their parents regarding nutrition and healthy choices. Over 215 Leagues in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States conducted the Kids in the Kitchen program in their communities in 2009.
