More and more young people engage in behaviours that jeopardise not only their current state of health but their health in the future, for example:

  • tobacco use
  • unprotected sex
  • lack of physical activity
  • alcohol use

Behavioural patterns established during these developmental stages help determine young people’s current health status and their risk of developing chronic illnesses later in life.

We want to help children be as healthy as possible by preventing illness, and encouraging healthy behaviours starting in a reception class to entering adulthood so work with parents and schools to do this.
