Fuel Up to Play 60 Minutes

Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with the USDA, to help encourage today's youth to lead healthier lives.

MyPlate for My Family workshop participants started eating foods that they reported that they would never eat, such as butternut squash in the Creamy Macaroni and Cheese recipe the group prepared. I heard, “I can’t tell that the squash is even in there!" and “I really like this, I think it’s better than any macaroni and cheese I’ve ever eaten."
