Launched by National Dairy Council (NDC) and the National Football League, in collaboration with the United States 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 program encourages kids to “fuel up” with nutrient rich foods such as low-fat and fat-free dairy, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and get “play” by getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
