New online index, digital health channel & shopper programme to promote healthy living
The Health Promotion Board (HPB) has launched three initiatives to encourage Singaporeans to lead a healthy lifestyle.
The first is an online checklist, Healthy Lifestyle Index (HLI), to identify a person's general health behaviour, based on lifestyle.
The second is healthyMEtv, the first digital health channel in the Asia-Pacific region with programmes on healthy living and well-being.
It'll offer programmes ranging from short videos on medical conditions to tips on exercise, healthy eating and relaxation.
The third initiative is a Healthy Shopper programme to help Singaporeans choose healthier food and ingredients when they shop for grocery.
The HPB is working on this with supermarket chains NTUC FairPrice, Cold Storage, Giant and Sheng Siong.
Shoppers will able to tell what's healthier when they shop for for food and ingredients such as fruit and vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins as they'll have the Healthy Shopper logo.
These new initiatives were launched on Saturday morning by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at Gardens by the Bay.
