— MUNCY — In celebration of the bounty of summer and to encourage healthy living, Susquehanna Health and Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania will offer a free Kids in the Kitchen program on Wednesday, July 17 at The LifeCenter in the Lycoming Mall.

Children ages 4 to 12, supervised by their parents or guardians, will have fun making and eating healthy snacks with help and recipes from Food Fit Recipe Coach Dani Sayah Arthur. Children will also learn more about choosing proper food portions through interactive instruction by Karen Baldys, RN, Pennsylvania Department of Health.

“Kids in the Kitchen is one of our most popular summer outreach activities at Susquehanna Health’s LifeCenter. It is always wonderful to see the excitement of the children as they creatively build their snacks and literally eat the fruit of their labor,” said Health Educator and LifeCenter Coordinator Robin Dawson.

Three sessions of Kids in the Kitchen will be offered at 11 a.m,, 12:30 p.m. or 2:30 p.m.

Seating for each session is limited to 16 children. Register early to reserve seating for one of the three session times by calling 1-877-883-4791.
