Kids in the KitchenObesity in children and adults within the United States is a problem and has been a recurring topic in the news media. Kids in the Kitchen was created to entertain, but more importantly educate people of all ages the significance of an appropriate diet, good nutrition, and proper eating habits that help to combat obesity. Kids in the Kitchen is a joint effort between the Dubuque Community School District and Mediacom Communications Corporation. With an enrollment of over 10,000 students, the Dubuque Community School District and Mediacom hope to make an impact on the way these students, as well as the over 20,000 subscribers of Mediacom, think about the way they eat.
