Kids in the Kitchen: Promoting a healthy lifestyle for Troy youth and families

The Junior League of Troy (JLT) will be hosting a Kids in the Kitchen event to encourage children and their families to make healthier lifestyle choices. Participants will engage in a variety of educational and physical activities, including tasting of local varieties of apples and learning about healthy portion sizes. All children will have an opportunity to pick a "just right" book and JLT members will read to children to help inspire a love of reading.  The JLT has partnered with the Carroll Hill community to host the event during parent-teacher conferences as a way to offer after school support. Families will leave with knowledge, resources and inspiration to prioritize health and wellness in their everyday lives.

This event is offered by Junior League of Troy members and to the community of Carroll Hill Elementary School. The books provided to the children have been generously donated by the people of Troy to inspire children to develop a life-long love of reading.
