Better known as the Rockstar Nutritionist, Jill Jayne has created a reputation of healthy rock since 2006. Her unique approach to nutrition addresses the childhood obesity crisis in a way that today’s media-savvy kids can digest. Using music, dance, and interactive learning, the show improves retention of healthy habits by using the same tools used by mass media marketers to sell junk food. Jill teaches entire schools about healthy eating and staying active. Jill’s work has been performed for over 250,000 kids across the United States and has been featured in national media outlets including NPR, PBS, The Washington Post, and industry trade publications.
