Dairymax Scores a Touchdown for Dairy Farmers with Fuel Up to Play 60 with Local Pep Rally.

Mon, 31 Jan 2011 14:39:30 CST

Dairymax Scores a Touchdown for Dairy Farmers with Fuel Up to Play 60 with Local Pep Rally. Putnam City School District’s Lake Park Elementary and its students celebrated the Fuel Up to Play 60 program for this school year on Monday by holding a school-wide pep rally to empower youth to take action to improve nutrition and physical activity at their school and for their own health.


Former Oklahoma Sooner and current St. Louis Ram Sam Bradford made a special appearance at the school and spoke with the children about eating healthy and being active for 60 minutes a day. The picture here is of Bradford talking with the students of Lake Park Elementary.


Fuel Up to Play 60 is a youth-led social marketing initiative designed to help prevent childhood obesity and help youth develop life-long healthy eating and daily physical activity habits. As part of the program, student teams work with adult leaders in each school to make kid-appealing, good-tasting, nutrient-rich foods more available. They also create opportunities for daily physical activity, such as walking clubs and after-school sports and dance clubs. Fuel Up to Play 60 encourages kids to get involved and make changes that will help make their schools healthier places. The program reaches youth directly and engages their help in leading and inspiring their friends. The United States Department of Agriculture, NFL and National Dairy Council are partners in the program.


Dairymax is the local Dairy industry representative group- and dairy farmer Brett Morris of Ninnekah, Oklahoma represented the dairy families of Dairymax on stage on Monday.


We talked with several folks about the Pep Rally, the Fuel Up to Play 60 program and how important it is to intersect production agriculture in our elementary schools across the state. Click on the LISTEN BAR to hear our audio overview from the program.
