The goal of the Junior Leagues' Kids in the Kitchen initiative (KITK) is to empower youth and families to make healthy lifestyle choices and help reverse the growth of childhood obesity and its associated health issues. Our annual Nutrition Fair connects the community with groups providing advice or access to information about living a healthy lifestyle. These groups range from nutritionists who provide cooking demonstrations, community groups who look to curb the effects of food deserts, government agencies who provide access to healthy food for low income families and fitness programs aimed at getting kids moving.

The JLB began holding KITK events in 2006 and has held an annual cooking demonstration or nutrition fair each of the last 8 years. Recent programs in both 2012 and 2013 were held in conjunction with the Brooklyn Children's Museum.
