Albany – Presented by The Junior League of Albany, Georgia, Inc., Kids in the Kitchen will be held on Saturday, February 8, from 11:00am – 3:00pm at the JCPenny wing of the Albany Mall. Kids in the Kitchen is a day of healthy fun and games for kids and their families. Attendees will have an opportunity to take Zumba classes, learn healthy recipes, participate in arts and crafts, and have a chance to win lots of cool prizes.
This is a free event to help our community come together in the fight against childhood obesity by involving kids and their parents in a hands-on environment that actually focuses on healthy lifestyles. Last year, 120 kids participated in Kids in the Kitchen, and the league is planning for 200 kids this year from local community programs and from shoppers passing by the event.
