Collaborating to engage Tennessee's youth
The Southeast Dairy Association and Tennessee Titans empower youth to choose more nutritious foods, including low-fat and fat-free dairy foods, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and to commit to 60 minutes of physical exercise every day through the national Fuel Up to Play 60 program.
The Southeast Dairy Association and Titans are doing their part. The collaboration combines the nutrition expertise of the Southeast Dairy Association and the fitness expertise of the Panthers to give children the tools and resources needed to change their personal health habits.
Fuel Up to Play 60 helps students make positive changes in their schools by improving opportunities to consume nutrient-rich foods and get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. The ultimate goal is to ensure changes made at school are sustainable and complements – not competes with – an academics-focused environment.

Titans of Taste Milk Contest 2012
Students at North Coffee Elementary took home the grand prize at the Fuel Up to Play 60 “Titans of Taste” Purity Milk Contest Celebration Luncheon here last Friday.
A collaborative effort between the Tennessee Titans, Purity Dairies and the Southeast Dairy Association, the “Titans of Taste” milk contest rewarded schools for increased milk consumption during the month of October. Titans Fuel Up to Play 60 representative Marc Mariani, the Voice of the Titans Mike Keith, Purity Dairies President Mark Ezell, Purity Vice President Tim White and local dairy farmer Randy Davis were on hand for the event.
“The dairy farmers of Tennessee are proud to be a part of the Titans of Taste contest,” said Davis, President of the American Dairy Association of Tennessee. “It’s great to see students get excited about milk.”
As the contest’s grand prize winner, North Coffee Elementary took home a cash prize of $5,000. The school, which increased milk consumption by 41 percent in October, will also host a pep rally with a Titans player, T-Rac (the Titans mascot) and the Titans cheerleaders.
As the winner of the video contest, Brentwood High School (Williamson County) was awarded $1,500 and eight tickets to a future Titans game. Watch the winning video here.
