Texas Farm Fresh Live!

Jump with Jill!

Live Interactive Event Brings Fresh Excitement to Learning about Healthy Lifestyles

The Texas Farm Fresh Jump with Jill Live Tour is teaching young Texans about nutrition and Texas agriculture using music and physical activity to reinforce key messages. The Texas Farm Fresh Jump with Jill Live Tour will visit 20 schools in North East Texas during September and October 2017.

"TDA has teamed up with Jump with Jill to help Texas children realize that eating nutritious foods and exercising every day makes them part of a very cool — and healthy — crowd,”  said Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. “These young Texans receive research-proven nutrition education along with follow up materials that continue the learning into the classroom. As part of our innovative Farm Fresh Initiative, this live event provides valuable lessons about good nutrition and Texas agriculture in a way that children will connect with and remember for years to come.”

The Texas Farm Fresh Jump with Jill Live Tour is part of TDA’s statewide Farm Fresh Initiative which encourages schools, child care centers and summer meal sponsors to purchase more local food and create healthy meals that kids enjoy eating. These TDA partners are also encouraged to offer education regarding local food, agriculture and nutrition through classroom lessons, taste-testing, connections with agricultural producers and garden-based learning. Farm Fresh activities provide a solid foundation for establishing life-long healthy habits, promoting healthy communities and strengthening local economies.
