Welcome to the State of California 

2011 CalCHEEPS Data Tables


The 2011 California Children’s Healthy Eating and Exercise Practices Survey (CalCHEEPS) is the most extensive dietary and physical activity assessment of 9- to 11-year-old children from homes receiving CalFresh in California. The CalCHEEPS uses a telephone-based 24-hour dietary recall interview to monitor diet, exercise, and weight status trends among low-income California children to evaluate their progress toward meeting the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the Healthy People 2020 Objectives, and the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. These data tables provide detailed information about California’s low income children including fruit and vegetable consumption, physical and screen time, high calorie low nutrient food consumption, weight status, awareness of the Power Play! Campaign and Harvest of the Month, out-of-home eating, as well as home and school environments. 

Interpretations of these data tables are those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of the California Department of Public Health or the Public Health Institute. Please note that the table numbers have changed from previous years. Please refer to the table names for historical reference.
