The Junior League of Charlottesville will host more than 100 kids at Johnson Elementary School Saturday morning for their annual Healthy Kids Fair.

It's called "Kids in the Kitchen" and in addition to teaching chidlren some healthy snack recipes, they'll have fitness instructors, chefs and they'll even work with parents.

"We...have a guest nutritionist from UVa that will be there to lead a couple sessions with the parents to help them understand about childhood nutrition and to speak with the children about ways that they can eat nutritiously as well as live a healthy lifestyle," says event organizer Colleen Spano.

The event is free and open to the public. They encourage kids from Kindergarten all the way up through sixth grade to come out with their parents to learn about healthy living.

To RSVP you can call (434) 971-2937 or e-mail the Junior League at training@jlcville.org.
