The Junior League of Durham and Orange Counties are inviting children from kindergarten through grade 5 to attend the Kids in the Kitchen Health Carnival this Saturday.
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Eastway Elementary School, located at 610 N. Alston Avenue in Durham.
Admission is free.
Parents are encouraged to attend with their children.
Activities at the carnival are scheduled to include wellness checkups by local health care practitioners, yoga for kids, hands-on demonstrations of how to prepare healthy snacks, presentations of nutritional information, and cooking demonstrations by local chefs.
The event is planned to help “empower youth to make healthy lifestyle choices and help reverse the growth of childhood obesity and its associated health issues,” organizer Lily Hsu said.
