Healthy Living Guides – Exercise and Healthy Eating

People with Down’s syndrome sometimes struggle to make healthy lifestyle choices. Having an unhealthy lifestyle can have a negative effect on their health, leading to weight gain and health problems.

As part of the DSA’s Awareness Week 2014 on health, the DSA created several healthy living guides to help people with Down’s syndrome look after their health. These include ‘easy read’ guides for people with Down’s syndrome, and guides for parents and carers to support healthy lifestyle choices.

You can find more information on our campaign for better health for adults with Down’s syndrome here.
