kitchen circuit feeding other areas

I've got a 15 amp branch circuit I'm running in my kitchen that feeds relatively minor items: two undercabinet lights and the vent fan for stove. Can I extend this to my 2nd floor to supply receptacles to a bedroom?

I'm already well-covered in the kitchen with 2 branch circuits supplying GFCI's over countertops, a branch circuit supplying general lighting, as well as three other circuits. I'm just paranoid about NEC restrictions on kitchen branch circuits feeding other parts of the house. Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can do this. You are wise to ask, since most other modifications to kitchen wiring would violate code. But circuits serving kitchen lighting are not very restricted.
