Fuel Up to Play 60

The health and wellness of Washington students is top of mind of dairy farmers across the state.

Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP60) is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council and the National Football league in collaboration with the U.S.D.A.. Locally, the Dairy Farmers of Washington and the Seattle Seahawks work together to encourage and empower youth to take action to improve the nutrition and physical activity at their school and lead healthier lives.

The ultimate goal is to create lasting, sustainable changes in the school so children have more opportunities to be physically active (60 minutes every day) and to fuel up with nutrient-rich foods like milk, fruit, whole grains and vegetables throughout the school campus. With over 2,500 schools participating in Washington and Alaska, students are working hard to get healthy and be active.

The key to Fuel Up to Play 60’s success is having a strong student foundation, a team of committed educators and community engagement. Together we can continue to build a healthy, high-achieving generation of youth!
