Kids are learning to eat healthier

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some Albany kids are learning to eat healthier.

The Junior League held the second of three Kids in the Kitchen Programs at Lake Park Elementary School.

It's an initiative to show kids how to make better food and lifestyle choices to reverse the trend of high childhood obesity rates.

"You see so many young adults that have early diabetes or have early strokes and it's usually because of eating habits and weight gain, this will show there are better things they can eat to prevent some of that," said Sharla Epling, Junior League of Albany.

The next Kids In The Kitchen will be next week at Sherwood Acres Elementary.
