Arkansas Governor and First Lady Pledge their Support of Fuel Up to Play 60

Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe and First Lady Ginger Beebe recently pledged their support to the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, an in-school health and wellness program that encourages youth to consume nutrient-rich foods and achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day. The Governor and First Lady joined students from Weiner High School in Weiner, Ark., Arkansas dairy farmers and members of Midwest Dairy Council to sign the symbolic pledge.
At the pledge signing, the Governor and First Lady praised the progress achieved to date by Arkansas students and indicated the program is a positive next step toward reducing childhood obesity in Arkansas. “Reducing childhood obesity and hunger are important challenges that Arkansas faces,” First Lady Ginger Beebe said. “Fuel Up to Play 60 helps provide healthy breakfast choices for students and encourages them to exercise or play for at least 60 minutes a day. I am thankful for the opportunities that Fuel Up to Play 60 provides to the school children in our state.” Learn more.
