New pilot to help people eat better and exercise more
25 October 2021
A new app to help people make positive changes to their diet and physical activity will launch next year, the government has announced today.
From January 2022, a pilot will see users wear wrist-worn devices that can generate personalised health recommendations, such as increasing their step count, eating more fruit and vegetables and decreasing portion size.
Users will collect points for these healthy behaviours which will unlock rewards, which could include gym passes, clothes or food vouchers and discounts for shops, cinema or theme park tickets.
