As so many of you are parents, educators and all around involved citizens, the California Milk Advisory Board asked me to tell you about a wonderful program for kids, schools & communities. So I partnered with them to bring you the details.
The program is Fuel Up to Play 60. It is a nation wide program.
Fuel up to Play 60 is an in school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council & the NFL in collaboration with the USDA.
The program is designed to help encourage kids to lead healthier lives. Many organizations, kids & adults are already involved – you, your kids and schools can be too. To date, 73,000 schools nationwide and millions & millions of kids have benefited from Fuel Up to Play 60!

Fuel Up to Play 60 educates and gives the opportunity for kids to make better food choices & to learn to incorporate exercise into their daily lives.
Kids love Fuel up to Play 60 ’cause it is fun, interactive, they can win prizes for participation ~ and make significant changes at their own schools.
Parents love Fuel Up to Play 60 ’cause their kids eat better, feel better & learn better.
Educators love Fuel Up for 60 ’cause kids that eat well & get physically active everyday are better & more engaged students. Also, because schools can apply for funding to implement nutrition & exercise programs at their sites.
