Fuel Up to Play 60

Since its launch, Fuel Up to Play 60 has empowered youth to make healthy choices that produce results, earning it recognition as one of the leading in school youth wellness programs.

How does the program work?

Fuel Up to Play 60 encourages students to work with adults to implement school-wide healthy eating and physical activity “plays” — initiatives that help students “fuel up” with nutrient-rich foods like low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and “get up and play” for at least 60 minutes every day.

Grants, exciting rewards, and additional resources make the customizable program easy for any school to implement and any student to be engaged. This program also helps meet school wellness goals.

How is Fuel Up to Play 60 making a difference?

The program has helped to make wellness part of the game plan in more than 73,000 schools across the county, including more than 3,500 schools in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont thanks to New England dairy farmers. Millions of students nationwide are more active and are eating healthier because of Fuel Up to Play 60.
