GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WXOW) - "We've got to eat right, we've got to eat breakfast. We've got to do those right things before we even get started with coming out on the field and running drills," says Green Bay Packers Kicker, Mason Crosby.
While it may not be training camp, students across the state who are keeping up with the Fuel Up To Play 60 Program, are getting a chance to see what it's like.
Although not every kid has the opportunity to get encouragement from Mason Crosby, they can get plenty of encouragement from their peers by participating in the Fuel Up to Play 60 Program.
"The whole school gets together and our whole school is a part of it, not just a group of people and so everybody gets to be a part of it as a whole community and not only our school, but we get everybody involved in it. And it's great to see everybody getting up and active," says Tess Keyzers an 8th Grader at Little Chute Middle School.
Learning healthy behaviors like exercising and including dairy, whole grains and fruits and vegetables in their daily diet will only help these young adults in the future.
Tess tells us, "If you stay active and eat healthy right now, your body will be better able to handle the conditions you put it through throughout your life and stay healthier."
"We had a hero's welcome where we thanked all of our local dairy farmers for all their contribution, and some of them didn't even know what Fuel Up to Play 60 was, so it was a great learning experience, and we were glad we could say thank you," says Hope Schier the State Fuel Up to Play 60 Ambassador.
And with the school year just getting under way, it's a new chance to make healthy lifestyle changes.
"Everyone enjoys it, and they're excited when we say that we're starting a new challenge or beginning a new play. And everyone enjoys coming back and participating in Fuel Up to Play 60," concludes Hope.
