Healthier Abbey Hill Academy

Choose to live well. The choices we make about how we live can have a significant effect on our health. Students who learn healthy habits at a young age will benefit from them throughout their life.

Get active, feel fitter, live longer

Whatever your age, being physically active can help you lead a healthier and even happier life. The amount of physical activity you need to do each week is determined by your age

Enjoy eating well

We need food to live, but to live well we need to eat well. A healthy, nutritious diet can help you look and feel your best, and is easier than you might think. Eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk of getting many major diseases, including cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

Stop smoking for good

Giving up smoking is probably the best thing you can do to improve your health. Smoking increases your risk of developing many cancers and lung diseases. It also kills about 80,000 people in England every year.

Rethink your drinking

Drinking too much alcohol could increase your risk of getting a major disease, such as mouth and throat cancers, liver cirrhosis, stroke and mental health problems. But it's not just binge drinkers who are at risk: regularly drinking more than the recommended limit can cause significant health problems.
