What Does Healthy Look Like?

Parents & Students are Invited! Saturday, March 16, 11:15 a.m. to 1:00p.m., Somerville Boxing Club at the Edgerly School, 8 Bonair Street.

Jillian Coen, nutrition and children’s health advocate will speak about the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices.  Jillian, a resident of Somerville, understands issues with weight and not exercising.  She has lost over 60lbs by changing her diet and getting active.

Jillian works full-time at the Massachusetts General Hospital for Children and understands the severity of the childhood obesity epidemic.  She will discuss:

• The link between eating breakfast and losing weight

• The importance of portion control

• Visualizing exercise as a change jar – “it all adds up”

• When you eat vs. what you eat

• Fast food makes you feel slow

• Three types of foods:  go, slow, and whoa foods

• Eating healthy is a “family job”

• Calorie Gallery:  What 200 calories looks like

• A personal triumph…my “aha” moment…

Jillian Coen is licensed to teach children, having trained as a Zumbatomic© Instructor.  A four-season member of OnStage Dance Company, which was featured on So You Think You Can Dance for National Dance Day 2012 and can be seen as a feature dancer on this season of HGTV’s Spontaneous Construction.  Come and meet her.
