Fueling Kids’ Healthy Lifestyles
January 28, 2016
GenYOUth Foundation is empowering students across the country to take control of their health
Healthy habits are easier to maintain the earlier they are ingrained in our lifestyle. That’s why GenYOUth Foundation started its signature program, “Fuel Up to Play 60,” the nation’s largest in-school health and wellness initiative.
Launched by the National Dairy Council and the NFL, and in collaboration with the USDA, the program empowers students to not only improve their own personal health, but to inspire their schools to do the same.
Now in over 73,000 schools, reaching 38 million children, “Fuel Up to Play 60” supports kickstarting each student’s day with a healthy breakfast, so they have the fuel they need to be more attentive and effective in the classroom. In addition, it encourages kids to eat nutrient-rich foods and do at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.
By allowing students to take control of their own well-being and take part in their school’s complete, customizable program, GenYOUth is giving children the tools they need to live a healthier, happier life. For more information, visit www.fueluptoplay60.com.
