History of Kids in the Kitchen (KITK)

The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. has made child health and wellness a priority since 1901. A 15-year-old AJLI, Inc. tradition, Kids in the Kitchen is a hands-on initiative to educate kids and their families about healthy eating and physical fitness. “The initiative is grounded in the belief that children (and families) empowered with the knowledge of how to feed and exercise their bodies will be less likely to become obese and subsequently suffer many associated health risks.”—AJLI, Inc.
