Highland, Michigan (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
Jammi (pronounced Jamie) Roscoe, the Founder of Eat to Win LLC, makers of FunNutritional games and products, presented a session titled “Childhood Obesity--Reaching Children Where They Are” at state conferences of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD).
AAHPERD is the largest organization of professionals involved in physical education, physical activity, dance, school health and sport. Its mission is to advance professional practice and promote research related to health and physical education, physical activity, dance and sport –with an end focus of improving the health and well-being of the American public.
The conferences took place in Tennessee in October and Illinois and Michigan in November.
The theme of Jammi’s presentation was how one can relate to children through the use of music, games and fun. Attendees were able to put themselves into the seat of a child for the day and consider how childhood learning is different from adult learning. Reaction to both the presentation and to Eat to Win games was very strongly positive. Dr. Gregory Ross, Director of the Division of Next Generation Professionals at the Kentucky Department of Education, said, “I truly believe that this is something that could really be a huge aid to districts trying to address areas of health awareness and measurable outcomes during program review. I was able to see it first hand and it was probably one of the most useful items I have seen that could actually educate and change the life of a young person.”
Jennifer Rivera, a Health and Physical Education Teacher from the Livonia, Michigan, Public Schools said, “What a powerful message! Our children will relate so well to Jammi’s materials!” Adrian Lyde, Assistant Professor of Health Education at Illinois State University, said. “I love the concept of Eat to Win games and look forward to taking the information back to my colleagues at Illinois State University.”
Jammi Roscoe, Chief Executive Director of Fun for Eat to Win, says, “We are doing everything we can to get the message out about our creative ways to fight childhood obesity. It seems our message really resonates with the teachers who attend the AAHPERD Conferences.”
