Programs

Dairy Council Health Foundation has a broad mission to assist in the reduction of childhood obesity and other related chronic diseases in our area. Working closely with other organizations, Dairy Council Health Foundation is able to make a tangible impact towards improving the health, nutrition and lifestyles of the youth in our communities through programs and projects.


Dairy Council Health Foundation Programs such as Fuel Up to Play 60 and Breakfast After the Bell have resulted in:
- Supporting students' autonomy in the realization of their health and wellness goals.
- Increasing students' access to school breakfast programs, which help boost attentiveness in school and decreases absenteeism.
- Increasing attentiveness in school and decreased absenteeism because they have access to breakfast.

 

Fuel Up to Play 60

Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school wellness program launched by National Dairy Council (NDC) and NFL, in collaboration with the USDA. The focus of Fuel Up to Play 60 is nutrition and physical activity, to help encourage today’s youth to lead healthier lives. Fuel Up to Play 60 helps students make positive changes in their schools by improving opportunities for access to breakfast and 60 minutes of daily physical activity. The ultimate goal is to ensure changes made at school are sustainable and compliment – not compete with – an academics-focused environment.

Breakfast After the Bell

Breakfast After the Bell
Starting the day with a balanced breakfast keeps students on the right track to a successful future, yet children in this country struggle with hunger. A new study shows that three out of five K-8 public school teachers say they see students regularly coming to school hungry. It has been proven that hungry students have trouble learning when they are focused on their empty stomachs rather than classroom activities. These students often lack concentration, and struggle with poor academic performance, behavior problems, and health issues. Breakfast Every Day works with School Administrators, Foodservice, Educators and Students, to find and implement innovative ways to combat hunger.
