Childhood obesity has broad health consequences for children and families, and affects 1 in 5 children in Northern Virginia. The Junior League of Northern Virginia (JLNV) prepares children for success by addressing childhood obesity through the promotion of nutrition and physical education, which is proven to enrich health, well-bring and academic outcomes. The JLNV is committed to reducing the number of impacted children by empowering families to make healthier choices.

Our community programs include: cooking classes with teens and parents; introducing children to where their food comes from and to basic concepts of nutrition and healthy eating through our Market Explorers and Kids in the Kitchen programs; holding our Kids Can monthly program at area family shelters and a swim camp in the summer and winter; supporting food access and community gardening initiatives; and hosting the Kids in the Kitchen Annual Spring Health Fair, our largest community event that serves hundreds of children.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 on Giving Tuesday to purchase wobble chairs for Mason Crest Elementary, a local Title 1 school. The wobble chairs will help the children engage in physical activity and expend excess energy in the classroom while improving focus and academic achievement.
