Missouri Success Stories
Garfield Elementary School, in its first year participating in Fuel Up to Play 60, has had great success in getting students involved with the program.
Apples, cheese sticks and broccoli – oh, my! In their first year of participating in Fuel Up to Play 60, students at Cedar Creek Elementary School are enjoying an increased variety of fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy options that are all available for both breakfast and lunch, thanks to the new grab-n-go options now available in their school’s cafeteria.
Kathy Beezley, Fuel Up to Play 60’s Program Advisor of the Year for Missouri, always encourages her students at Rogers Middle School to implement the healthy eating and physical activity habits they learn through the program outside of school time – especially during summer break.
