Fuel Up to Play 60

Launched by the National Football League (NFL) and National Dairy Council (NDC) 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 goal is to support sustainable changes in schools, for children to be physically active and choose tasty, nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains). Since Fuel Up to Play 60 began in 2009, more than 73,000 schools have enrolled nationwide, including over 70% of the schools in Indiana thanks to partnership between the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana dairy farmer families.

Having access to the Fuel Up to Play 60 Playbook, grants, fun rewards and additional resources help make the customizable program easy for any school to implement and any student to be engaged. This program even helps to meet school wellness goals. Is your school ready to Fuel Greatness?
