Summer is here and boy is it hot out. Perfect for some cool ice cream made from Real California Milk. Exercise and nutrition continue to be important even through the summer months. Between my hitting the gym early, my son active with baseball and my daughter deeply involved with her colorguard practice, we are non-stop. This means we have to be sure to fuel up each day. Fuel Up to Play 60 encourages kids to fuel up with nutrient-rich foods – which include low-fat and fat-free dairy, lean meats, fruits, vegetables and whole grains – and achieve at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. In fact, dairy is a source of protein, calcium and vitamin D. Real California Milk represents the real foods from real people – dairy foods made with milk from more than 1,400 California dairy families.
The right nutrition fuels play time with friends and family all year long and the Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign can help provide the tools you need.
School may be out but learning to be a leader never stops. Encourage your kids to sign up to be a FUTP 60 ambassador, which encourages leadership amongst peers, healthy nutrition and physical activity. Kids can start learning more about FUTP 60 healthy eating and physical activity plays, earning points before the school year even starts!
Don’t forget, helping kids succeed both in the classroom and throughout their lives starts with being a role model. Look for ways to encourage healthy eating and physical activity all summer long and see the difference once school starts in the fall.
