Change4Life is our flagship programme for preventing childhood obesity. Obesity is a major risk factor in many life-threatening and long-term conditions, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, strokes and cancer. Change4Life aims to improve those health behaviours, such as poor diet and lack of physical activity which can lead to obesity, particularly in children.
Change4Life has become one of the most instantly recognisable brands in health improvement. It enjoys high levels of trust and involvement from both the public and private sectors.The ambition is to create a movement in which everyone in society plays their part, helping to create fundamental changes to those behaviours that can help people lead healthier lives.
