What we’re seeing here looks like the “Amish” part of Amish Naturals Inc. Although this is a “gift” to the community, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this lead to Amish Naturals becoming a spokesman for healthy eating.

“I’m delighted to be involved in an initiative that helps thousands of kids share in the fun of learning to select and prepare delicious foods that enhance their own lives and help their families stay healthy too,” said Executive Chef for Amish Naturals, Stacey DeHass.

Amish Naturals Partners with The Junior League on Renowned Kids in the Kitchen Education Initiative

Amish Naturals Executive Chef will Embark on Tour to Teach Kids About the Importance of Healthy Eating

Natural food products company, Amish Naturals, Inc. (OTCBB:AMNT), will partner with The Association of Junior Leagues International Inc. (AJLI) on its renowned “Kids in the Kitchen” education initiative, the company announced at the 86th AJLI Annual Conference in San Diego, California.

“As a company committed to bring premium food products to the nation’s table that not only taste great, but are truly good for you, our partnership with the Kids in the Kitchen program is a natural fit for us,” said President and CEO of Amish Naturals, David Skinner, Sr.

As part of Amish Naturals’ participation in the program, Stacey DeHass, Amish Naturals’ executive chef, will embark on a city culinary tour to help youngsters learn about healthy eating and involve them in the preparation of their own meals and snacks, including recipes and snacks that serve as a complement to Amish Naturals’ fresh, organic pastas and line of wholesome food products. Tour dates will be announced over the next few months.

“I’m delighted to be involved in an initiative that helps thousands of kids share in the fun of learning to select and prepare delicious foods that enhance their own lives and help their families stay healthy too,” said Executive Chef for Amish Naturals, Stacey DeHass.

“The Junior Leagues are determined to remain in the forefront of this struggle to enable children to take proper care of their bodies and control their future health,” said AJLI President, Sandi Kemmish. “With the help of companies like Amish Naturals, we are able to continue the grassroots Kids in the Kitchen campaign to provide children with hands-on education activities related to nutrition and healthy meal preparation. We believe that education and hands-on involvement are the first steps toward addressing the urgent issues surrounding childhood obesity.”

More than 240 Junior Leagues participate in this grassroots initiative to empower children to adopt healthy lifestyles. Organized in 2006, Kids in the Kitchen responds to the staggering statistic that nearly one-third of children and adolescents in North and South America will be overweight by 2010 and at increased risk of contracting Type II diabetes, high blood pressure, the numerous ailments related to high cholesterol and social problems that affect self-esteem.

The Junior Leagues’ comprehensive website supports the grassroots programs, which are free to participants, with entertaining and educational material focused on childhood health. Because children are more likely to try new foods they have helped prepare, the website features easy-to-make, tasty and nutritious recipes from chefs and celebrities. The website can be found at http://kidsinthekitchen.ajli.org.
