Dairy Max Promotes Breakfast in Fuel Up to Play 60 Campaign

Thu, 27 Mar 2014 20:25:16 CDT

Dairy Max Promotes Breakfast in Fuel Up to Play 60 Campaign What happens when the Dallas Cowboys, an Oklahoma City metro school, Oklahoma Action for Healthy Kids and Dairy MAX get together? You mix it all together and you get a super cool school breakfast event, that's what. A pair of Oklahoma dairy producers were on hand at the Oakridge Elementary School in southeast Oklahoma City on Thursday morning to help lead the cheers for milk and breakfast.

School breakfast benefits kids by providing nutrients they need like protein to get them prepared to learn. Statistics tell us that only about one third of kids in this country eat breakfast at school. Some kids eat at home, but many (up to 60% depending on the age group) eat nothing at all in the morning. This event and others like it across the country are making a big push for kids eating school breakfast just like the kids at Oakridge Elementary are doing, and empowering students and families to lead change in their own schools through Fuel Up to Play 60.

Helping inspire the students at Oakridge was former Dallas Cowboy Cornerback Larry Brown. who continues to be a part of the Cowboy organization within their game day broadcast team. Brown told us that he is a big believer in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program that has been embraced by the NFL and the nation's Dairy Farmers. He does several of these events annually- and he says he feels like a big kid as he mixes and mingles with the children at elementary schools like Oakridge.

During the event, Farm Director Ron Hays talked with both Larry Brown and with Oklahoma dairy producer Brett Morris of Ninnekah about the synergy going on with Fuel Up to Play 60. And we talk about the health of the dairy industry this spring with Morris as well. (The picture above includes dairy farmer Tom Woods of Gage, Larry Brown and Brett Morris)
