Rowe spoke about the Fuel Up to Play 60 program at the United States Department of Agriculture's 150th Anniversary celebration in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, May 15, 2012. Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council and the Nationjal Football League, in collaboration with USDA, to combat childhood obesity. Fuel Up to Play 60 helps students make positive changes in their schools by improving opportunities to consume nutrient-rich foods and get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. The ultimate goal is to ensure changes made at school are sustainable and complements but does not compete with an academics-focused environment. USDA photo by Bob Nichols.
