Nationally acclaimed rock & roll nutrition show decorated for music video produced in partnership with the National Watermelon Promotion Board 

grreeeeenAshland, KY, April 19, 2016 –  
Jump with Jill has been named a Bronze winner in the 37th Annual Telly Awards for The Sweet Beat in two prestigious categories: Education and Children. Jump with Jill was selected from over 13,000 entries from all 50 states and numerous countries.

Produced in support of the rock & roll nutrition show Jump with Jill currently touring the world, The Sweet Beat is an interactive music video about the naturally sweet taste of fruit. This video was funded by the National Watermelon Promotion Board and was shot in Jump with Jill’s Pittsburgh headquarters using an all Pittsburgh-based cast and crew. As each color fruit is featured, the static background transitions to a school-themed scene through carefully crafted lighting, set, and costuming. As the video builds, the scenes are slowed down and merged to create the swirl of color that should fill your plate and your shopping cart for a healthy diet. Viewers interact with the video by making their own Sweet Beats with their two favorite fruits and their own dance moves using the provided audio track at jumpwithjill.com/sweet and the hashtag #sweetbeat.

The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 and is the premier award honoring outstanding local, regional, and cable TV commercials and programs, the finest video and film productions, and online commercials, video and films.  Winners represent the best work of the most respected advertising agencies, production companies, television stations, cable operators, and corporate video departments in the world.

A prestigious judging panel of over 500 accomplished industry professionals, each a past winner of a Silver Telly and a member of The Silver Telly Council, judged the competition, upholding the historical standard of excellence that Telly represents.  The Silver Council evaluated entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other – rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.

“The Telly Awards has a mission to honor the very best in film and video,” said Linda Day, Executive Director of the Telly Awards.  “Jump with Jill‘s accomplishment illustrates their creativity, skill, and dedication to their craft and serves as a testament to great film and video production.”

Jump with Jill Goes to Europe!

Jill JayneDepartment of Defense1 Comment

It’s April, the Month of the Military Child, where #KidsServeToo. So Jump with Jill is returning to Europe to tour Department of Defense schools in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. The shows will be in English, as audiences will be expatriates. But that won’t stop these stateside stars from trying their hand at German and Dutch food words while trying to navigate in the economy (that’s military lingo for being off the installation… wait, there we go again speaking in code!). Look for posts on our social media feeds over the next two weeks for the whereabouts of our most cultured cast.

It’s our third European tour. We are very proud to serve the families of troops with our show!

Happy Registered Dietitian Day!

Jill JayneAcademy of Nutrition and DieteticsLeave a Comment

Happy Registered Dietitian Day! A day to recognize the accredited credential of nutrition expertise.

Why do RD/RDNs need their own day?

“While all registered dietitians can be called nutritionists, not all nutritionists are registered dietitians. To be a registered dietitian nutritionist, you must complete a four-year bachelor’s degree in nutrition science and supervised training in an accredited program that includes clinical and community settings. In addition, all RDNs have passed the national comprehensive exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. RDNs must also complete continuing education requirements to maintain our RDN credential.

The term ‘nutritionist’ is not accredited. In fact, it may represent someone who has taken an online certification course, or it could be someone who feels entitled to call themselves a ‘nutritionist.’ If your nutritionist isn’t qualified to work for a hospital or physician’s office, that’s cause for concern.”

— Upton, Julie. “5 Things a Dietitian Would Never SayUSNews & World Report. March 2, 2015.

Although the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation became a national philanthropy in 1972 and has operated on a national scale since then, it also has continued funding a limited number of local institutions and projects in the New Brunswick area and throughout New Jersey. It does so in part to honor the legacy of its founder, and in part to recognize the special responsibilities to the communities and the state in which it is located.
