Make a healthy swap for you and your family

Mon, 06/02/2017

You and your family can make a healthy change by downloading the free Be Food Smart app to cut down on harmful salts and sugars in your family’s diets.

You can see what is in your food and drinks and there are food detective activities for children and mini missions for all the family to help improve your family’s health in the New Year.

Too much sugar and saturated fat can lead to the build-up of harmful fat. By making a healthy swap, such as from Coca Cola to water, you can help prevent the build-up of unhealthy fat, weight gain and diseases in the future, like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

The campaign from Public Health England launches following a new survey that found that more than 1 in 4 children aged 4-to 5-years-old and more than 1 in 3 children aged 10 and 11-years-old are overweight or obese.

Download the free Change4Life Be Food Smart app from the App Store or Google Play or search Change4Life for more information.

There are loads of events and activities that you and your family can get involved in to be healthier, including family health sessions provided by MyTimeActive and hundreds of hours of free and low-cost events and activities in Westminster’s leisure centres.
