Would vouchers encourage healthier living?
Families in England are to be offered £250m in vouchers in a bid to encourage them to eat healthily and exercise. Would tokens inspire you to keep fit?
The food and fitness industries will pay for the "Great Swapathon" as part of the government's plans to involve business in the promotion of healthy living.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley said: "It's a great example of how government, the media, industry and retailers can work together to help families to be healthy." He added: "The healthy option isn't always the cheapest option so it's a really important step to be able to offer £50 off healthier foods, drinks and activities."
But food policy experts have previously raised doubts about involving big brands in public health campaigns.
Will you apply for these vouchers? Would food vouchers, nutritional advice and discounted activities help you eat more healthily? Should businesses get involved with public health? Are you planning to live healthily in 2011?
