The Community YMCA and the Junior League of Monmouth County are presenting Kids in the Kitchen this Saturday, Oct. 6. The event is fun and interactive, according to a release, and is designed to teach children how to prepare healthy snacks and meals, as well as the importance of staying active and making healthy lifestyle choices.

Children will create healthy treats at the smoothie and trail mix stations, and will move and groove at the fitness station. Other activities being offered include, herb planting, plate coloring, plate the food and create your own chef's hat.
