Healthy eating and exercise

Eating healthy food and doing exercise can help you look after your health.

Making healthy choices can sometimes be hard. We have made two guides to help you.

You can download a Healthy Eating guide: Healthy Eating Easy Read.

You can download an Exercise Routine guide: Exercise Routine Easy Read.


Our DSActive team have developed an app for your mobile phone or tablet that will help you make healthy choices about what you eat and keeping active.

It’s called the Health Swap App.

You can read more about it on the DSActive website: The Health Swap App

Or you can click here to download it and get started right away.
