WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Children at the Brigade Boys and Girls Club learned how to live a healthier lifestyle Thursday afternoon.

The Junior League organized the program called Kids in the Kitchen.  About 75 children went to different stations geared towards healthy eating.

They learned about washing their hands, eating healthy snacks, and learning how to stay active.

Organizers say they host the program to try to beat the health problems caused by childhood obesity.
