Get moving! Be active every day
Just like a bike may become rusty if it is not used for some time, our muscles and bones need to be kept moving too. Activity is needed to keep your heart healthy and your bones strong. It can also be good fun. Try to include some form of activity every day: it may be just walking to school and running up the stairs. However, games like skipping and football at break times are good for giving the body a workout. Swimming is a particularly good sport for keeping you healthy.
In 2015, the European Food Information Council (EUFIC) celebrates 20 years of achievements as a balanced source of science-based information in the area of nutrition and health, food safety and quality, and consumer insights. For 20 years, EUFIC has helped consumers to be better informed when choosing a well-balanced, safe and healthful diet and lifestyle.
Kids can answer questions about their diet and lifestyle, and learn healthy tips at the same time. Following these ten tips will help them stay fit and healthy. It’s as easy as riding a bike, once you’ve got the balance right!

The 22nd European Congress on Obesity (ECO), hosted by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO), took place in Prague, Czech Republic, in May 2015. Obesity remains a major public health priority in Europe, with prevalence continually increasing, as was highlighted in a presentation by the WHO Regional Office for Europe. Their obesity forecast exercise indicated that unless immediate action was taken, the proportion of overweight or obese adults in Europe would rise by 2030. ECO raises awareness of the issue, and provides a platform to promote, inform and engage in the latest scientific developments in the field. The varied programme drew over 1,200 participants from 73 countries worldwide, and featured a range of obesity-related topics. EUFIC interviewed seven of the speakers at the conference, who summarised their research findings.
