What is Fuel Up to Play 60?
Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council (NDC) and National Football League, in collaboration with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is being rolled out locally by Western Dairy Association and the Denver Broncos. The program empowers youth to take actions to improve nutrition and physical activity at their school and for their own health. The program encourages youth to consume nutrient-rich foods (low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, fruits, vegetables and whole grains) and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
