DE PERE (WKOW) — Kids are jumping and pumping at Heritage Elementary School in De Pere. Kids are also being inspired to make healthy choices.
Performance and registered dietitian Jill Jayne packs a whole lot of nutrition into her long traveling stage show and she’s rolling it out to youngsters worldwide.
Now, enthusiasm is catching on in schools across Wisconsin. A recent stop at Heritage Elementary in De Pere brought the crowd to its feet, literally.
The Jump With Jill events get kids up and moving with catchy songs and fun movements. Catchy lyrics and cool dance moves prove more effective than simply stating facts. The strategy is empowering kids to make healthier choices.
Jill Jayne and twelve Bills players joined over 300 excited elementary school students at the seventh annual Play 60 Challenge Fitness Party for youth on December 6, 2011 at the Bills Healthy Zone Fieldhouse.
The Play 60 Challenge Fitness Party is an interactive fitness event that rewarded approximately 360 students (3rd – 6th graders from ten Buffalo Public and two Orchard Park elementary schools) that participated in the Play 60 Challenge this school year.
Enjoy the video from our day with the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. We kicked off the day with a professional session for FUTP60 student ambassadors, ran drills with Detroit Lions coaching staff, lunched, then closed the day by dancing to the Jump with Jill Beat of Our Body flashmob on the 50 yard line. Jill is on stage with current wide receiver Nate Burleson and Roary the Lion. On the sidelines, there’s retired players Luther Ellis and Herman Moore. On the field, there’s 400 teachers and students from Detroit schools. And yes, that is Beat of Our Body playing on the jumbotron at Ford Field!
From November 14 – 21, 2011, The Rockstar Nutritionist Jill Jayne performed her live nutrition rock concert, Jump with Jill, for seven Department of Defense schools in Southwest Germany. This interactive show teaches nutrition through music and movement. Jump with Jill is an innovative answer to childhood obesity prevention, formatted as a kid-appropriate rock ‘n roll concert with healthy eating and exercise messages.
“The show is a great way to establish healthy habits while the kids have a great time. They almost forget that they’re actually learning something,” says Jayne, a Registered Dietitian (RD) and accomplished musician. “Jump with Jill tours all over the United States and we are so excited to perform it for our service member’s families and communities.”
