Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) was established by America’s dairy farmers (through the National Dairy Council®) and the National Football League and is the nation’s largest in-school health and wellness program. The U.S. Department of Agriculture supports the program’s health and wellness goals.

FUTP 60 empowers students to increase opportunities to be physically active and choose tasty, nutrient-rich foods, such as low-fat and fat-free milk, yogurt, cheese, fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

More than 73,000 schools and 38 million students have been helped to choose good-for-you foods and get 60 minutes of play a day.

All 32 NFL teams have activated FUTP 60 in their markets to reward students and schools for making healthy choices, using the NFL’s physical fitness legacy and star power to heighten interest and participation.

Some of the nation’s most credible and influential health organizations, including the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Association/Foundation and the School Nutrition Association, endorse FUTP 60.
