Is your school a Fuel Up to Play 60 school? Do you have a great story to share about your school’s participation in the Fuel Up to Play 60 program? If you are a school foodservice staff member, a teacher, or an administrator whose school is working to improve the lives of students through healthier eating habits and increased physical activity, Beyond Breakfast wants to tell your story right here on our blog!
One of the best ways to spread the word about healthier food and lifestyle choices, like those that the Fuel Up to Play 60 program encourages, is through social media. When you tell your story with us at Beyond Breakfast we will help you promote the blog on our Facebook page and on Twitter; if your school is on Facebook and Twitter, we want to connect with you there!
