It’s not always easy to feed kids the right messages about food, but the Santa Barbara Junior League will do its best at the Kids in the Kitchen event on Spring into Health Day, Saturday, March 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Franklin Elementary (1111 E. Mason St.). The event features a health fair that will blend fun and education in order to encourage smart lifestyle choices and increase awareness of the many healthy eating and exercise options available right here in Santa Barbara for K-6th grade students and their parents. (After all, the Cheetos often don’t fall far from the tree, to coin a phrase.) The Kids in the Kitchen initiative, sponsored by Junior Leagues across the nation, was created in response to the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and the urgent need to address the issues surrounding this problem.
