Fuel up to play 60
Fuel Up to Play 60 provides resources that educate and empower adults, students and schools
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. This program even helps to meet school wellness goals.

Also, sign up for Fuel Up to Play 60 newsletter through American Dairy Association Indiana and follow us online @INDairy for great tips and resources.
Schools choose a Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Play in the Playbook. Student teams then help plan, promote and execute the Plays.
Program Advisors then work with students to complete three simple steps within the online dashboard to become a Touchdown School.
Students can use the website to collect points towards becoming a leader within the school as a Student Ambassador. A free Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Zone app is also fun and easy to use.
Throughout the year, Indiana dairy farm families support grant funding to help kickoff new programs or enhance what your school is already doing. Grant applications should include details on how additional dairy can support your school’s efforts.
