Over the summer DSActive launched the Health Swap for people with Down’s syndrome to use in an App on their phones and tablets to help them make good choices on their lifestyle.
Jo downloaded it onto her phone for Oliver to use. Here’s how he’s found using it.
“We have had great fun adding his exercise each day and to gain points and badges. You can put in all about yourself as well and update this every time you use it to gain points.
The food section is great and I have tried a few of the recipes, but as yet Oliver is to be convinced. The great thing is that there is nothing negative on the food section, so if you do choose the takeaway option they just tell you to choose better next time.
The whole App is straightforward to use and there are lots of exercise options to use and the amount of time you exercise for is easy to use.
Oliver loves adding his smiley face each day, or whatever mood he is in. This will give you points as well.
Recently they have also launched the DSActive Health Swap App Group on Facebook. There are lots of blogs and advice and facts about nutrition. I can really recommend this App. It’s worth downloading and giving it a go. We love it.”
