Keeping fit and eating well

Even small changes to you and your family’s daily routine, physical activity and eating habits can make a big difference to the health and wellbeing of you all. Increased physical activity, maintaining healthy weight, eating a balanced diet and playing sports can not only prevent illness, but can improve your mood, confidence, sleep and concentration.

If you’d like to get more exercise and discover healthier ways to eat, you’ll find lots of advice and information online and at Change4Life and Bristol City Council.
