Have you been thinking about ways to inspire your kids or your kids classroom to get active and eat healthy? That is the message behind Fuel Up To Play 60 sponsored by the National Dairy Council and the NFL.
The program creates fun challenges for your kids and offers a chance to earn prizes and made a difference in your own life.
The idea is to encourage your kids to eat nutrient-rich foods that are low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains. And it hopes to inspire kids to achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
If your child’s classroom signs up the school gets:
• A free School Wellness Kit with a Quick Start Guide, banners and removable decals we can
hang around school and other planning tools for adults and students
• Access to an online Playbook with ideas for spreading the word and challenging kids at our
school to eat right and stay active. The Playbook includes “plays” or Action Strategies that
help students and adults bring the program to life. Plays include fun ideas like a Milk
Moustache Booth, Menu Makeovers, Trivia Contests, Schoolwide Walking Club and In-Class
• Access to the Fuel Up to Play 60 Online Tracker where we can log and track our healthy
eating and physical activity behaviors.
• Opportunity to engage in Challenges for a chance to unlock digital rewards (e.g., badges)
and win other cool rewards.
All you have to do is enroll your school at www.fueluptoplay60.com. It will walk you through the program. And you may even get the chance to have an NFL player come to your school. You will be able to track the classroom’s involvement online.
