Abstract The food environment during the early years (6 months to 5 years) is an area of untapped opportunity to influence family experience of healthy eating and have an impact on healthy weight through diet, which will extend throughout the life-course. We utilised a rapid co-production and partnership approach to mapping the local community and home food environment as drivers of healthy diet in childhood obesity in Nottinghamshire to identify levers for action within our emerging whole system approach for obesity.A simple first draft system map was developed using knowledge of childhood obesity and informed by the evidence base. This was reviewed and amended during a multiagency project team workshop. Community structured interviews with parents were conducted to inform the system mapping process. A second draft system map was then developed using online Insightmaker software. This was then reviewed at a stakeholder event with 80 frontline childcare, early years and health promotion practitioners. The final draft of the system map was then produced.A local system map of community and home food environment in the early years was developed within a 3 month period using this co-production methodology [INSERT THE MAP].It is possible to utilise a system mapping approach using a co-production approach to better understand levers and drivers in a local food system within a 3-month period. Frontline practitioners can engage with this process which can help identify areas of intervention in the system. External funding details Support from the Department of Health through the National Childhood Obesity Trailblazer Discovery Phase.
