Childhood Obesity Communications Toolkit

Go Beyond Your Practice

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted our communities by leading to the shutdown of traditional spaces for physical activity and social interaction, such as schools and playgrounds. The pandemic exacerbated California’s obesity crisis by limiting access to safe spaces for healthy activity, encouraging more sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle choices, and spurring anxiety and social isolation.

In 2021, Champion Provider Fellows and Local Health Departments (LHDs) came together to discuss concerns about the health of their communities. As a result of these discussions, this toolkit was created as a strategy to foster community dialogue and develop potential solutions for these emerging health issues.

Resources included in the toolkit:

  • Video
  • Tipsheet
  • Engagement & Follow-up
  • Talking Points
  • Social Media
  • Resource Sheet
