Change4Life Be Food Smart

Our kids are eating too much sugar, saturated fat and salt.

Public Health England's Change4Life campaign is encouraging parents to ‘Be Food Smart’, by downloading a new a app to highlight how much sugar, saturated fat and salt can be found in everyday food and drink, giving parents the opportunity to take more control of their children’s diets.

What is Change4Life?

These days, ’modern life’ can mean that we’re a lot less active. With so many opportunities to watch TV or play computer games, and with so much convenience and fast food available, we don’t move about as much, or eat as well as we used to.

Change4Life for your kids

Nine out of 10 of our kids today could grow up with dangerous amounts of fat in their bodies. This can cause life-threatening diseases like cancer, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. 

Change4Life for you

By the time we reach middle age, the majority of us could do with losing at least a bit of weight. Being overweight isn’t just about the way we look. It can lead to more aches and pains, problems sleeping and people report a loss of energy and confidence. It also increases our chances of getting heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Middle age comes to everyone – ‘middle aged spread’ doesn’t have to. 

You’ve taken the first step towards getting yourself or your kids eating well, moving more and living longer just by being here - so welcome to Change4Life! Find out more by visiting the Change4Life website.
