Kids in the Kitchen!

A healthy kids’ initiative to fight childhood obesity and promote health and wellness while teaching children nutritional recipes and tips on how to stay healthy.

Each year, our Kids In The Kitchen (KITK) committee, explores new ways to get involved in the community to impact children and families' health and well-being.

Each year, we participate in events such as Healthy Kids Day hosted by the Manatee YMCA and Christmas in August hosted by the Bradenton Kiwanis. At these events JLMC members teach participants about healthy snack options, and then spin a wheel filled with exercises (like burpees!) and complete them with the kids. We've got to stay fit, too! 


Through a partnership with Realize Bradenton, JLMC hosts a monthly healthy cooking session at the Bradenton Farmer's Market. Kids will be given a healthy twist on a recipe for something they love to eat, like pizza. They are then tasked with finding the ingredients in the market. Once all of the ingredients are gathered, members of JLMC help lead the kids through their recipe. Family members got to take home recipe cards to replicate the yummy creations and hopefully find new local vendors to enjoy.
