Jill Jayne ‘Rocks’ on the East End with a series of Nutrition Educational Assemblies for Middle School Students
The Ann Liguori Foundation, named for the Founder and President of the Foundation, sports talk show host and reporter, Ann Liguori, brought nutrition expert educator/musician Jill Jayne and her live rock ‘n roll nutrition educational concert to three Middle Schools in the Hamptons this week. Jayne conducted her musical nutrition educational assembly for the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders in two sessions each, at the Southampton Intermediate School, Springs Public School and the Pierson Middle School in Sag Harbor.
Jill mixes her musical talents with educating young people about the ‘Healthy Children, Healthy Futures 8 Habits of Healthy Kids:’
· Spending at least 1 hour a day being physically active
· Spending less than 2 hours a day watching TV, playing video and computer games
· Eat at least a total of 5 fruits and vegetables every day
· Snack on healthy foods and less junk food and sweets
· Drink or eat at least 3 low fat dairy foods a day
· Drink at least 2 glasses or bottles of water a day instead of soda
· Eat less fast food and make healthier fast food choices
· Eat smaller amounts – bigger is not better.
Jill’s messages also include respecting your body, eating breakfast, drinking more water, getting enough calcium, examining food packages more closely and eating more foods with less sugar.The Ann Liguori Foundation is a 501c3 public charity whose mission is to raise funds and awareness for organizations who work in the field of cancer prevention, research and cancer care-related charities, specifically directed to help people on the East End of Long Island. “Educating young people about making healthy eating choices and the importance of exercise is so important in preventing many diseases and for over-all good health,” says Liguori. “Jill brings so much excitement and enthusiasm to these shows and the students are energized and educated about eating healthy and the importance of exercising. It’s such an important message!” Liguori adds: “Teachers have come up to me and said it is the best assembly they’ve ever seen and the kids really connect with Jill. The Ann Liguori Foundation is proud to make this possible.” Liguori, a Westhampton resident, would like to continue to bring the nutritional education concert to more schools on the East End. Tim Frazier, Principal at Southampton Intermediate School says, “Jill did a fantastic job not only as a celebrity, but as a professional educator. I wish I could hire her as a teacher. She really knows how to connect with teachers, students and parents.”
