Kids in the Kitchen teaches children about healthy meals

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- More than 100 kids learned how to make their own healthy smoothies and dishes at the Boys and Girls Club on Cherry Avenue.

The 15th annual Junior League Kids in the Kitchen event invited families to learn how to make their own healthy meals.

There were also activities, including martial arts, for kids to learn how they can develop a healthy and active lifestyle.

Megan Flowers, chair for the Junior League Kids in the Kitchen, said their event gives kids the opportunity to develop their healthy habits early.

"It seems to be increasingly important to everyone, especially to young kids, to have access to healthy food and to have ways that they can do healthy food on their own at home," she said. "One reason that it's so special to us here in Charlottesville is that the community just really loves it."

Flowers said they're planning to continue this tradition next year.
