On April 20, children ages 4-8 and their parents are invited to participate in Kids in the Kitchen, an annual and free family-friendly event at the South Florida Science Museum hosted in partnership with the Junior League of the Palm Beaches. Held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Kids in the Kitchen presents fun nutrition and exercise demonstrations and activities for children to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. The free event is open to the public for the first 100 children who sign up.
Among the food activity stations, children will learn how to make simple healthy snacks and can taste health foods they’ve never tried before. They’ll also have fun cooking with Chef Atkins, graduate of Johnson and Wales Culinary Arts. Kids will visit fitness booths to learn easy-to-do exercises, watch a karate demonstration by Palm Beach Chikubu-Kai Dojo and get Boost Fit tips from the Boosterthon Team, a school-based initiative that challenges students to choose fitness on a daily basis. The South Florida Science Museum will also host a class on anatomy and healthy eating. The event will feature Hometown Bridges, which provides educational resources and programming to the community. Kids in the Kitchen includes free giveaways and favors for every child who attends.
