Adoption and Implementation of the Fuel Up to Play 60 Program in Schools
Objective: We examined the adoption of Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) and factors related to implementation of "plays," or guided changes to healthy eating and physical activity practices. Methods: A cross-sectional study using a survey instrument to assess adoption and implementation as reported by school stakeholders. Results: Schools enrolled during 2010-11 (N = 10,245) and 2011-12 (N = 8,995) were surveyed. In 2010-11 and 2011-12 respectively, 47.6% and 44.1% of responding schools implemented a play. Schools with an adult program advisor, a student ambassador, a program kit, a grant, or that completed activities and/or competitions were more likely to implement a play. Conclusion: FUTP 60 program characteristics are associated with implementation of healthy eating and physical activity plays, and the resources provided to schools may help with implementation.
