Kids in the Kitchen

Join us at Kids in the Kitchen

What: Kids in the Kitchen, a Healthy Eating and Fitness Activity Fair

This annual event showcases ways for kids to eat smart and make healthy lifestyle choices. Celebrity chefs will host healthy cooking demonstrations, fitness experts will lead kids in high-energy exercise sessions, and certified nutritionists will be on hand to answer questions. This fun-filled day will offer games, crafts, hands-on learning, and exciting raffle prizes - all to celebrate and promote nutritional literacy!

This year, the Junior League of Washington is partnering with the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures Campaign® and will have Colgate's Mobile Dental Van on site for kids up to age 12 to get free dental screenings. With long-standing partnerships with governments, schools and communities, Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures® has reached more than half a billion children and their families across 80 countries with free dental screenings and oral health education, and the Junior League is thrilled to have them at Kids in the Kitchen.
