Quaker sports a new deal with NFL


CHICAGO — The winner of a contest sponsored by the Quaker Oats Co. will appear with an NFL rookie quarterback in an event sponsored by the company to promote healthy living.

Quaker, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, said 10-year-old Hunter Paulin would join the Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck at the Kids Day at NFL Experience Driven by GMC, where Luck will introduce him to kids from the New Orleans area during a Quaker Oatmeal breakfast event before they run football drills. Luck and Paulin will encourage kids to eat healthy, stay active and serve as role models for healthy living.

For the contest, Quaker partnered with NFL Play 60 to encourage thousands of children to share how they are inspired by their NFL role models and how they stay active with their families and eat well. Paulin, of Washington, was selected as the "NFL Play 60 Super Kid" and recognized by NFL players in his hometown in December, and will attend Super Bowl XLVII with his family and get to run the game ball onto the field just before kickoff.
