The Jack and Jill of Suffolk County Chapter’s 7-9 age group experienced health and wellness through yoga and clean eating in our most recent activity. We had the privilege of having Janine Fernandez, fitness guru, lead our youth alongside children from the Boys and Girls Club of Bellport. Janine made yoga and mindfulness fun for our children. We understand that introducing children at an early age can help them learn healthy lifestyle habits and set the foundation for a fit future. Jack and Jill moms assisted our Jacks and Jills in making healthy chicken wraps and smoothies. We definitely had our daily dose of delicious fruits and vegetables during this event! All of the children engaged in learning how to take care of themselves from the inside out, mind, body, and soul. Kudos to the 7-9 age group! They were outstanding in their efforts and successful role models to the children of the BGCB. Namaste
Health Thrust: The Suffolk County 7-9 Jacks and Jills showed community involvement to the children that participated in the Yoga Fun activity by modeling good character and selfless actions. Our Jacks and Jills value community service because they understand that it is a way of providing important services and is a way of strengthening their age-group. This was a great way for them to feel closer. They did a great job!
