Florida Departments of Agriculture and Education Join Florida Dairy Farmers and NFL to Improve Health and Wellness in Florida Schools
Date:4/12/2010

king together received grants of $5,000 per school to promote healthy eating and physical activity to all students at their schools. Each Fuel Up to Play 60 pilot team consisting of approximately 20 students and their advisor were charged with developing projects that inspired their peers to make changes to help them be healthier and more active. Each team chose a nutrition and physical activity project to implement throughout the year. The grant funds were used to help make the team’s vision a reality. (Bay Point Middle school in Pinellas County is being asked to attend the news conference to share how the program has made a difference at their school.)
   
The projects were planned, managed and executed in collaboration with other school wellness initiatives and included the principal and staff from areas including food services, health education and physical education. In addition, all students could track their healthy behavior changes online at fueluptoplay60.com through the state and national competitions.
   
“With one in three Florida children 10-17 years old considered overweight or obese, programs like Fuel Up to Play 60 are more important than ever,” said Jennifer W. Sills, Registered Dietitian and Director of School Marketing for the Dairy Council of Florida. “Through ongoing research and innovative programming and resources, the Dairy Council of Florida has been committed to helping schools combat poor nutrition, inactivity and obesity among Florida’s youth since 1958. Fuel Up to Play 60 will continue to expand in the coming years through bold leadership and new partnerships with organizations and industry leaders such as the Florida Departments of Agriculture and Education and the NFL, helping achieve changes no single organization could achieve alo
