The way we live today means a lot of us, especially our children, have fallen into un-helpful habits. This means all of us need to make small changes to eat well, move more, and live longer.
What is Change4life about?
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.
This means that nine out of ten 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 - so it’s really important that we do something about it.
