KIDS IN THE KITCHEN: Kids in the Kitchen presents an entertaining and creative approach to the introduction of healthy eating habits, assisting with preparing nutritious snacks and meals, and kitchen safety for children 3 years to 6 years. Each class utilizes literature, music and movement where students can sing and read about various food themes. This method of instruction promotes good health and literacy by contributing an academic element. By instilling these lessons and habits to our children, we can ensure they will continue to practice a safe and healthy lifestyle as they continue to mature. Kids in the Kitchen occurs on JBPHH on Feb 21 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm and on Wheeler AAF from 12 pm to 1 pm.
