Assessment for the National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR): Key informant interviews to inform nutrition and physical activity efforts in child care settings during the COVID-19 pandemic [Executive summary]


The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) brings together four of the nations’ leading research funders—the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA)—in a public-private collaboration to accelerate progress on reversing the epidemic of overweight and obesity among U.S. youth. In 2020, NCCOR formed a workgroup to determine the needs related to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic’s impact on childhood obesity, including the research needs focused on child care, which includes traditional early care and education (ECE) and after-school settings. Thus, the Gretchen Swanson Center for Nutrition (GSCN), in partnership with NCCOR, conducted a study to explore how the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) and American Rescue Plan (ARP) investments may affect child care facilities, including how it will impact children aged 0-13 years, the ages designated in the legislation.
