TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Some East Texas Girl Scouts learned a few life lessons Saturday afternoon.  More than 50 Girl Scouts took part in the Junior League of Tyler's "Kids in the Kitchen," a free event designed to help spread knowledge about healthy living.  The girls learned about nutrition by making their very own personal pizza.

Lacie Massingill with the Junior League of Tyler says the fun the girls have also has a deeper meaning.

"I think absolutely since obesity is such a problem with kids these days," said Massingill.  "If these girls can walk away with maybe a different idea on how their lifestyle should be in their future eating, nutrition, exercise, and all those things, then we've had a success."  By participating today these Girl Scouts also earned themselves another badge.
