As an active mom of three play and staying active is important to our family. We are partnering with Quaker today to inspire other families to get out and play!
Playing is so important and our girls love to play. Our afternoons are filled with time at the dance studio and we wouldn’t change a thing. See play is important for kids. Not only to keep them happy and healthy but because it builds strong social and emotional skills as well.
With all the playing we do it’s just as important that we fuel up before we play. With dance three hours a day some day it’s important that our girls have everything they need to stay fueled.
This fall, Quaker is joining forces with Fuel Up to Play 60 and the NFL to launch the For the Love of Play campaign to help fuel healthy families and encourage them to get active for 60 minutes of play a day. So whether it’s dance or flag football get out and play every day!
A healthy lifestyle means that you get plenty of exercise but nutrition is just as important. Start the day with a hearty bowl of oatmeal, enjoy a quick snack before an after school activity or grab a granola bar for in between. Quaker is one of those brands we can rely on to keep us fueled and ready to go.
Now through December 1, 2014, you can visit QuakerMakethePlay.com to share the unique way that your family plays for a chance to win a grand prize “Day of Play” in your hometown with Indianapolis Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck, plus daily giveaways for a $50 NFLShop.com online gift card.
