Fuel Up to Play 60

Fuel Up to Play 60 
Fuel Up to Play 60 – Healthy Students are Better Students! Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council, the Southeast Dairy Association and the NFL. It’s all about getting students to “fuel up” with nutrient –rich foods missing from their diets, like low-fat and fat-free milk and milk products, fruits, vegetables and whole grains and to “get up and play” for 60 minutes each day.  And now, new research shows that better nutrition, starting with breakfast, coupled with increased physical activity can lead to better academic achievement. Fuel Up to Play 60 also understands the real-world circumstances of resource-strapped schools by offering funding opportunities to help schools make strides in achieving wellness goals. Go to to “Join the In-School Program” and learn more about the tools, resources and funding opportunities available to your school.
