Fuel Up to Play 60 en español

Fuel Up to Play 60 is a national in-school nutrition and physical activity program designed to engage and empower youth to take action for their own health by implementing long-term, positive changes for themselves, their schools, and their communities.

In 2015, the program, in collaboration with GENYOUth and PepsiCo Foundation, evolved and expanded launching Fuel Up to Play 60 en español to encourage Spanish-speaking communities nationwide to live healthier lifestyles through good nutrition and physical activity.Fuel Up to Play 60 launched a redesigned website providing Spanish-language content and materials, extending the reach and access of the program to students, teachers, and families across the country.


The national student body is increasingly diverse, making it important to reach students and their families in culturally relevant ways. With the Hispanic population in schools projected to increase to 29 percent of total enrollment by 2024 and Spanish being the most spoken non-English language in the U.S., there was a need for Spanish-language resources that can help engage a greater number of kids and their families in health and wellness initiatives.


Program resources available via the website include:


  • A Spanish-language interactive Student Dashboard, an online Playbook with a collection of culturally-relevant content, including easy-to-implement healthy eating and physical activity Plays, Ambassador informational pages, mini-lessons and reporting activities are some of the resources available online via a dedicated page (Espanol.FuelUptoPlay60.com).
  • Also available in Spanish are tools to help schools and educators facilitate connections with parents, such as a take-home letter, a guide to introduce the program to Spanish-speaking families and ideas for how parents can get involved both in school and at home.
