Champions for Change (California Department of Public Health CDPH )

We want the best for our kids. We want them to be healthy. We want to protect them from serious health problems like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. So we are making healthy changes in our kitchens, homes, schools, and neighborhoods. We make the rules now. Rules like:

You do not have to be a health expert to protect your child from serious health problems. But you do need to be committed to helping your family eat more fruits and vegetables and be more physically active.

Change is good. Healthy eating and active living are starting to happen in families and communities everywhere. It is not always easy but we are making it happen. And so can you.

Become a Champion for Change. And become a champion for your family’s health.
