This is a sponsored collaboration with Real California Milk and the Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign.
Summer vacation away from school brings about the feeling of endless amounts of time, or so say my kids. They have been excitedly telling me about the things they’ve accomplished and experienced during the day since their break officially began.
It puts a smile on my face because nothing makes me happier than to see them getting the most out of these amazing and magical summer years. The kind we reminisce about as adults while trying to inspire the same sense of joy in our own children.
As a parent, it’s so nice to see initiatives that help promote the same type of memory-creating experiences like Fuel Up to Play 60 which was created by the NFL and the National Dairy Council. Fuel Up to Play 60 promotes physical activity and good nutrition in schools. As parents, we can continue to provide the influence at home to keep our kids happy, healthy, and ready for the next great school year.

It isn’t only about telling kids to go outside and play, though, there has been so much more thought put into it than that. It’s a goal to help kids feel great by providing them with well-balanced and nutrient-rich foods. Some great examples of these kinds of foods are low-fat and fat-free dairy, lean meats, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The last and final step to this campaign

Speaking of dairy, and since Real California Milk is such a huge part of my home state I’d like to share what Real California Milk stands for. The real people and real families that make up the more than 1,400 dairies that proudly display the seal on their products.
The last and final step to this campaign is the Play 60 portion, the most fun part of all. Which is to inspire our kids to get up, and be active for 60 minutes every day. There are so many wonderful activities we have the time for now. Our kids will be fueled up and ready for the epic amounts of fun to be had.
I know I can tell the difference in my kids when they’ve been eating healthily. I know I feel better with resources to check in with to make sure I can ensure I’m giving the nutrients needed to fuel playtime all year around.
