A survey of over 5,000 adults has revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people’s eating and physical activity habits, with over 41 per cent of people in England saying that they have put on weight since the first lockdown in March 2020.

Public Health England has launched the latest Better Health campaign to encourage adults across the nation to lose excess weight, eat more healthily and get active this summer.

The NHS Better Health website offers free evidence-based support and guidance to those working towards a healthier weight and help them introduce changes that will help them eat better and get active.

There’s also a range of NHS apps you can download, including the updated 12 week weight loss plan, couch to 5k, drink free days, easy meals and food scanner.

Search ‘Better Health’ or visit the NHS Better Health website for free tools and support to start leading a healthier lifestyle today.
