Childhood Obesity – Change4Life launches new “Be Food Smart” campaign

Without realising it, we are all eating too much sugar, saturated fat and salt. Over time this can lead to harmful changes on the inside and increases the risk of serious diseases in the future.

Childhood obesity is a growing issue with figures showing that in England, more than 1 in 4 children ages 4-to 5-years-old and more than 1 in 3  children aged 10 and 11-years-old are overweight or obese.

The Be Food Smart campaign empowers families to take control of their diet, by making healthier food and drink choices. The free app works by scanning the barcode of products, revealing the total sugar, saturated fat and salt inside and providing hints and tips for adults and fun food setectives activities for children.
