Welcome to the State of California 

Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention Branch - Rethink Your Drink Campaign

The Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention Branch (NEOPB) - Rethink Your Drink Campaign is a public health initiative led by the California Department of Public Health and administered by the Local Health Departments.

The Rethink Your Drink Campaign’s primary goals are to:
1) educate low-income Californians about healthy drink options,
2) help identify drinks with added sugar,
3) make the link between consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks and health risks.

In this way, the campaign hopes to shift consumption toward healthier, more affordable beverages, like water. At the same time, the Rethink Your Drink Campaign hopes to stimulate community-level partnerships and invite local environmental changes that will improve access, affordability and desirability of healthy beverages.


Model SNAP-Ed Social Marketing Initiative

The Rethink Your Drink Campaign is included in the USDA SNAP-Ed Obesity Prevention Toolkit for States.
