Fuel Up to Play 60

Win with Wellness!

The recipe for healthy kids is simple. Combine 60 minutes of physical exercise with good nutrition to build strong, healthy kids. Dairy farmers did their homework and found a program to empower youth to do both: Fuel Up to Play 60.

This 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. It encourages youth to choose nutrient-rich foods first and get out and play at least 60 minutes each day. Fuel Up to Play 60 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. Millions of students nationwide are more active and are eating healthier because of Fuel Up to Play, with encouragement from over a hundred thousand enrolled parents and educators. Community members also offer support for Fuel Up to play in various ways.
