Posted August 5, 2015

Wondering what in the world you'll be packing your kids for lunch this school year?

Duke Children's Healthy Lifestyles program will offer some tips and recipes at a free event on Aug. 19. Registration is required by emailing katelyn.chiang@duke.edu by Aug. 14.

The program is open to children ages 5 and up and their parents. Attendees will move through several stations to learn how to make Duke Children's Healthy Lifestyles dietitian-approved snacks and lunches. Kids also can make their own Healthy Back-to-School Kit once they've completed all of the activities.

It's 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Aug. 19, at Edison Johnson Recreation Center, 500 W. Murray Ave., in Durham. It's part of the Kohl's Bull City Fit, a community-based wellness program to combat childhood obesity and get kids moving and eating healthfully.
