Dallas Cowboys Free Safety Byron Jones motivated Vestal Elementary students to get active and eat healthy at the Dairy MAX Fuel Greatness Breakfast Games.
The goal of the event was to celebrate the powerful impact healthy school environments play and to teach kids to see food as fuel to help them succeed.
After enjoying a healthy breakfast in the classroom with Jones, the Fuel Up to Play 60 student team was split into three teams to race in the Breakfast Games, a three-part obstacle course challenge. The teams were prized with gold, silver and bronze medals.
Jones also talked to the students about the importance of eating three healthy meals a day and students got to ask him about his favorite breakfast food, to which he replied: eggs sprinkled with cheese. The crowd went wild.
