It is back to school time, and that means getting back into a routine after the fun summer break. This used to be a harder transition for my kids, but now that my oldest two boys are in 2nd and 3rd grade, they know what to expect. It is also time for us to be thinking about exactly what activities they will participate in this year and what I’ll be sending them with for lunch and snacks. Like most parents, I want to raise happy, healthy kids! That is why we love going to the park, playing in our large backyard and going on nature hikes to keep our kids active. We also limit snacks to certain times of the day so they don’t graze and offer snacks that we can feel good about, like granola bars, yogurt and fruit. I received a Quaker® Fuel Up to Play 60 Family Fun Kit which fits perfectly into our lifestyle!
Quaker has teamed with Fuel Up to Play 60, the nation’s largest in-school wellness program, and Emmitt Smith to encourage and inspire families to balance eating sensibly and getting active as they fuel up for back-to-school.
With this partnership, they want to help families understand the importance of eating sensibly and getting active to maintain a healthy lifestyle. From his days gearing up for football season, to getting his own kids prepped for the school year, Emmitt Smith knows firsthand that a healthy lifestyle helps families fuel greatness for the season ahead.
Quaker has been committed to fueling families for the past 138 years by offering nourishing products made with whole grain oats, educating families on the importance of leading an active lifestyle and seeking partners that offer physical activity solutions. Partners like Fuel Up to Play 60 and Emmitt Smith help continue that mission.
Earlier this month, Quaker and Fuel Up to Play 60 gave giving fans a chance to win one of 1,000 back-to-school fuel packs, complete with Quaker products and a Fuel Up to Play 60 football. If you missed that fun promotion, here is another way to fuel up with Quaker!
