Good nutrition decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.  Healthy eating habits result in a sense of emotional well-being and serve to stabilize mood.  Unfortunately, however, 33% of adolescents in the United States are overweight or obese.

In the JKL program, 94% of students make healthier eating choices.

Some nutrition components include:

  • Recipes: provided to give healthy meal options on a budget for students and their families
  • Outings: trips to restaurants and farmers markets to get hands-on experience
  • Cooking Demonstrations: by chefs, nutritionists and representatives from area Food Banks
  • Healthy snacks and water: provided at each program meeting
