We're supporting the new Better Health Families campaign and launch of the NHS Food Scanner App.

The app is the ideal health hack for families, helping them to swap food and drinks that are higher in sugar, saturated fat and salt to healthier alternatives. With a simple scan of the barcodes, families can see how much sugar, saturated fat and salt is in everyday food and drinks.

You can download the app and get more information about the campaign, food and recipes on the Better Health Families website.

You can also find 10 Minute Shake Up activities - favourite Disney characters will inspire children to rediscover being active by having loads of fun outdoors, together with their friends and family.
