The Village's Leisure Services Department teamed up with other local parks and recreation departments for the first Green Bay Area Healthy Youth Inside & Out Extravaganza on July 27, 2011.
The health initiative is designed to promote healthy habits in children.
For about three hours, children participated in a variety of lively activities leading up to the Jump with Jill rock concert. There were group games, kickboxing and dance lessons, and tours through Bellin Health's oversized inflatable heart. Children could enter the heart to see its parts and learn how to keep it healthy.
Jill Jane a nationally recognized rock star nutritionist, took the stage to make being healthy hip and fun. Jane tours the country under the name of 'Jump with Jill' and promotes healthy lifestyles. Through her performances, she teaches children about healthy eating habits, exercising, and overall ways of keeping bodies in shape.
