Fuel Up to Play 60
Fuel Up to Play 60 is a school wellness program brought to you by the National Dairy Council, Midwest Dairy Council and the National Football League, in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture, which encourages our youth to choose nutrient-rich foods first and get out and play at least 60 minutes each day. It has helped to make wellness part of the game plan in more than 73,000 schools across the county, including more than 12,000 schools right here in the Midwest.
Fuel Up to Play 60 is endorsed by leading health and nutrition organizations, including Action for Healthy Kids, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the School Nutrition Association. It is aligned with First Lady Michelle Obama’s platform, Let’s Move, and is complementary to other school wellness initiatives, including the USDA’s HealthierUS School Challenge.
