Health Swap: The Healthy Living App for people with Down's Syndrome

05.11.2019

A new app has been launched to help people with Down’s syndrome make more informed choices about healthy eating and exercise. Research shows that more than 70% of people with the condition are overweight or obese, and that less than 20% hit the Government’s physical activity recommendations. The Down’s Syndrome Association have developed the app to try and help people with Down’s syndrome to make healthier lifestyle choices and improve their physical and mental well-being.

This App has been designed to help people with Down’s syndrome and their parents or carers to make positive changes to their lifestyle through healthier eating and activity tracking, whilst also improving their digital skills and capabilities.

Staying motivated is easier with Health Swap as the App awards you badges and points as you make positive changes to your health. Choose from many healthy home cooked meal alternatives and get expert nutritional advice and pointers by learning how to ‘Eat the Rainbow’.

Gone are the days of sifting through healthy eating recipe books and scribbling long lists of ingredients. Health Swap helps you plan for the week ahead by giving the user scroll-able ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Once you’ve planned your meals the App will automatically create a really useful shopping list.

The Health Swap App does not stop there, it will also give you step by step instructions on how to prepare and cook healthy breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts and snacks.  

Health Swap is designed to be really easy to use, so the only thing you’ve got to lose is weight whilst feeling great!
