Miss Oklahoma to Tell Students to Eat Healthy and Be Active at Fuel Up to Play 60 Assemblies

Mon, 14 Nov 2011 11:28:04 CST

Miss Oklahoma to Tell Students to Eat Healthy and Be Active at Fuel Up to Play 60 Assemblies Many Oklahoma Schools are taking the lead for student health by participating in a nationwide wellness initiative. Community-focused and fun, Fuel Up to Play 60 is activating schools and communities to support school wellness initiatives, good nutrition and physical activity, which help educate students and curb obesity. In partnership with the National Dairy Council, Dairy MAX, and the National Football League (NFL), these schools are recruiting friends, parents, teachers and business and community leaders to join them in pledging to adopt healthier behaviors, such as choosing foods encouraged by the United States Department of Agriculture, which has also joined the initiative, and committing to 60 minutes of physical activity every day.


Three schools are hosting a Fuel Up to Play 60 kick-off assembly featuring Miss Oklahoma Betty Thompson on Friday, November 18.

8:25 a.m. - Cashion Elementary, Cashion (101 N. Euclid)

10:00 a.m. - Cotteral Elementary, Guthrie (2001 W. Noble Avenue)

2:10 p.m. - Truman Primary, Norman (601 Meadow Ridge Road)


"It is important develop healthy eating choices and habits now and that includes drinking your milk, or three servings of dairy every day, and to participate in programs like Fuel Up to Play 60 with your friends," Thompson will tell the students.


"Schools are in a unique position to influence the eating and physical activity habits of students," says Susan Allen, program coordinator for Dairy MAX. "We need community-wide support to help students build positive, lifelong habits, and Fuel Up to Play 60 provides the healthy messages, resources and activities we need to get started."
