WHAT IS FUEL UP TO PLAY 60?


Launched by National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League (NFL) in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Fuel Up to Play 60 empowers youth to take action to improve nutrition and physical activity at their school and for their own health. The ultimate goal is to ensure changes made at school are sustainable, making it possible for children to have more opportunities to be physically active and choose tasty, nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains) throughout the school environment.

Now in its fourth year, more than 70,000 schools are enrolled in Fuel Up to Play 60 nationwide. Together with the involvement of local dairy councils, all 32 NFL Clubs, USDA, supporting health and nutrition organizations (including Action for Healthy Kids, American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Dietetic Association, National Hispanic Medical Association, National Medical Association and School Nutrition Association) and several major corporations, the program will further its progress by expanding its reach and impact in the years ahead.

Congratulations to our 2015 Fuel Up to Play 60 Grant Winning Schools!
