The world’s only rock & roll nutrition show, Jump with Jill uses music and dance to celebrate healthy habits by transforming nutrition education into a live concert. To date, the Jump with Jill show has been performed 3,000 times for a million kids across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Created by Registered Dietitian and professional musician Jill Jayne, MS, RD, Jump with Jill is both educationally sound and completely rock & roll. Behaviorally focused and research-proven, the show creates a world where healthy is not just an important thing to do, but the cool thing to do.
Jump with Jill covers:
- RESPECT YOUR BODY: You only get one. Exercise and eat healthy to show your amazing body the respect it deserves. You make the decisions around here.
- FUEL YOUR ENGINE WITH THE BEST ENERGY: Your body is your engine. When you fuel your body with healthy foods, your engine can perform at its peak.
- GET GOIN’ WITH BREAKFAST: Start each morning with a healthy breakfast to activate your body and mind for a rockstar day.
- ENJOY NATURE’S CANDY: Choose fruits like watermelon, apples, bananas, and kiwi for their naturally sweet flavor.
- EAT SUPERPOWER VEGETABLES: Discover your superpowers. Join the ranks of your favorite superheroes by powering your plate. Vegetables give you healthy skin, hair, muscles, eyes, and bones. United against junk food, we will be victorious!
- EXERCISE DAILY TO MAKE THE BEAT OF YOUR BODY (Woot! Woot!): Your heart, lungs, and muscles have to be strong, because when you’re exercising, your body makes a song. So get those rhythms pumping every sort of way, so you can be your strongest each and every day.
- DRINK WATER: Make the clear choice. Answer your thirst with the refreshment that stands out from the crowd.
- GET YOUR CALCIUM ON: Grow strong. Eat dark, leafy green vegetables and low fat dairy foods like milk, yogurt, and cottage cheese to get the calcium strong bones need.

Cast arrives 2 hours prior to show time to set up. They have their own sound system but will need help to: - Clear off the stage or performance space we will be using. If your school does not have a stage, make a 15 x 20 foot space available. - Turn on any available stage or professional lighting. - If your stage is shared with your cafeteria, fold up and safety store any cafeteria tables. Mopping may be necessary, so please engage support staff early so the floor has time to dry. - Set up a row of chairs for teachers on each side of the room.
