Fuel Up to Play 60 Boosts Funding for Healthy Kids

fuel up to play 60Fuel Up to Play 60, the in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council, local Dairy Councils and the National Football League, in collaboration with United States Department, just announced that it is adding more money to its nationwide funding initiative for K-12 schools enrolled in the school wellness program.

Fuel Up to Play 60 shares the same sentiments as First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign, namely to prevent childhood obesity by encouraging young Americans to move more and choose healthier foods.

The new and increased funding initiative provides money to help schools jump-start and sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity improvements. Eligible schools can apply for up to $3,000 to help them increase awareness of and access to nutrient-rich foods and physical activity opportunities for students.

Fuel Up to Play 60 empowers students to engage their peers to “fuel up” with nutrient-rich foods they often lack – particularly low-fat and fat-free milk and milk products, fruits, vegetables and whole grains – and “get up and play” with 60 minutes of daily physical activity.
