Junior League members had the annual “Kids In the Kitchen” event at the Boys and Girls Club of Oklahoma City.

Chef Ryan Parrott gave cooking demonstrations about healthy snacks. The 300 children spent time at one of five cooking stations and each group spent time at a cooking station learning about ingredients, making the recipe and eating it. They also had a discussion about what made the snacks healthy.

The cooking stations were themed “Delicious Dairy,”  “Great Grains,”  “Very Veggie,”  “Power Proteins” and “a Spoonful of Sugar.”

There were aprons, chef’s hats, measuring cups and recipes for the participating children.
