Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin Rocks Out with Jump With Jill

Wisconsin, are you ready to rock? I said, are you ready to rock! The Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin have definitely caught the rockstar bug, recently partnering up with Jump with Jill to present a rock & roll nutrition assembly to schools across Wisconsin. In honor of March National Nutrition Month, five lucky elementary schools will be treated to the Jump with Jill Live Tour Presented by the Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin, which teaches kids about the importance of healthy eating and draws attention to Wisconsin dairy, from March 4-8.

Karen Doster, Youth and Schools Program Manager, The Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin“We are excited to offer this experience to help Wisconsin school children realize that fueling up with local nutritious foods like milk, cheese, and yogurt and exercising every day will help them to live happier, healthier lives,” Youth and Schools Program Manager Karen Doster said in a press release. “The show format teaches nutrition in a fun kid-friendly way and supports the key messages of our Fuel Up to Play 60 program.”

This program feels especially appropriate in Wisconsin, given the state is known as America’s Dairyland and boasts over 8,000 dairy farms—more than any other state—and has more cows in the state than children attending school.

Jill Jayne, Creator, Jump with Jill“We are so excited to sing the praises of Wisconsin dairy farmers,” Jump with Jill Creator Jill Jayne said. “Milk is also our official beverage so we are excited to show off our strong bones.”

Jump with Jill is the brainchild of a registered dietitian and musician, and the program has been performed a whopping 3,500 times in six countries for over one million kids. This approach to nutrition education covers healthy habits from eating breakfast to enjoying fruits and vegetables to regular exercise. The show has what it takes to draw in kids, with a blinged-out milk jug affectionately called by his rapper name, Calcium. One of the main themes of the show is the spotlight on the essential work of dairy farmers that produce nutritious calcium- and protein-rich foods and drinks.
