About Us!

Our Mission

Kids Cooking for Life (KCL) is dedicated to empowering young people to enjoy the benefits, pleasures and skills of cooking healthy food; promoting longer, healthier and happier lives.




Our program is designed to empower young people of all ages to enjoy the benefits, pleasures and skills of cooking balanced foods. We are dedicated to reversing the epidemics of childhood obesity and the early onset of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers, which are all rising at an alarming rate among children today.

 


Addressing a Social Need for Healthy Change:

Nearly one-third of American children today are overweight. Research shows that healthy diets and regular physical activity are the most effective ways to address the childhood obesity epidemic and the early onset of type II diabetes, heart disease and some cancers, which are rising at an alarming rate among children today. Students who are active and have healthy diets: are more prepared to learn and have improved test scores; miss fewer days of school and feel good about themselves.
