Change4Life is a major public health campaign to tackle obesity.
Two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are overweight or obese in the UK, so Change4Life is focused on families with children. It encourages healthy eating and easy ways to exercise. It focuses on small behaviour changes that make a big difference. These include eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, swapping sugary snacks for healthy ones and being more active.
It’s surprising how much sugar builds up in your family’s diet. At breakfast time… in drinks… in after school snacks and, of course, puddings. But sign up for Sugar Swaps and they’ll help you cut back.
100 calorie snacks
When it comes to snack time, we know it can be hard if your kids are pestering you or helping themselves to whatever they like from the cupboards.
Snacks can all add up – and there's more sugar in them than you think.
Make smarter choices when buying packaged snacks by remembering this top tip: look for 100 calorie snacks, two a day max!
