All Lee’s Summit R-7 schools are participating in Fuel Up to Play 60, a program that encourages students to exercise regularly and make healthy food choices. The program was founded by the National Dairy Council and the NFL in collaboration with the USDA.
To sign up, students and parents may visit www.fueluptoplay60.com and select “Join us.” Parents are encouraged to help their children fill out the information, record their school name and also make note of their username and password. Children under 13 require their parents’ permission to be fully active on the website.
Through the website, students may track their physical activity and nutrition for each day. The goal is 60 minutes of exercise and healthy eating each day.
Students who log in daily may win prizes for themselves or for their school, such as a school visit by an NFL player, school assemblies and even Super Bowl tickets. In addition, parents may sign up through the website under the “supporter” section and track their nutrition and exercise along with their children.
Student groups may also attend Chiefs home games, attend Team Summit at Arrowhead and other events.
