NHS Change 4Life
What is Change4Life
Change4Life aims to ensure parents have the essential support and tools they need to make healthier choices for their families. Modern life can mean we are a lot busier, less active, and more reliant on convenience and fast food than we used to be. But that's where Change4Life comes in, helping families with fun ideas to help kids stay healthy, whether with easy recipes for busy weeknights, great sugar swaps, Disney-inspired games to get kids moving or help in understanding food labels.
Change4Life was launched in 2009 as part of a national ambition set out in the government's Healthy Weight, Healthy Lives (2008). Its purpose has been to inspire a social movement, through which government, the NHS, local authorities, businesses, charities, schools, families and community leaders can all play a part in improving children's diets and physical activity levels.
Look out for the Change4life packs sent home through school twice a year which encourage you and your family to make healthy life changes and food swaps!
