Looking back on the Live Longer Wales season

The Live Longer Wales season finished this last weekend and over the last three weeks our TV, Radio and Online services have looked at inactivity at work, diets, what's in our food, how you can cook and grow your own food, body image, Type 2 diabetes and a host of other subjects.

The weekend started on Friday with the Radio Wales Cook-along curated by Simon Wright and finished with Dudley's Grow It, Cook It, Eat It with the people of Ynysybwl on Sunday. And around 50 organisations from across Wales opened their doors for free last weekend to let us get a taste of what a more active life might be like.

Most of our programmes are still available through our Live Longer Wales website and after that you will be able to access all the online material that’s been created alongside the programmes from tips to keeping fit and how to eat more healthily. 

Thanks to all of you who have been in touch with us and kept up with the programmes. I know that the Live Longer Wales season has given rise to sometimes passionate debate and we have welcomed your comments whether you were sympathetic or disagreed.

We hope at least that the last three weeks have helped you get inspired about how you and your families can live a longer and healthier life.
