Change 4 Life - Happy Tree Town is a public health program in the Happy Tree Town which began in December 2015, run by the HTK Department of Health and Welfare. It is the town's first national social marketing campaign to tackle the causes of obesity.

Change 4 Life aims to help families and middle-aged fanon characters make small, sustainable yet significant improvements to your diet, activities and alcohol consumption.

Change 4 Life encourages residents and other fanon characters to adopt six healthy behaviors:

  • 5 a Day - suggestions for ways to eat the recommended five portions of fruits and vegetables each day.
  • Watch the Salt - advice on reducing the amount of salt eaten each day
  • Cut Down Fat - information about the saturated fat found in foods and ways to reduce this
  • Sugar Swaps - information about sugar found in foods and suggestions for a healthier diet and alternatives.
  • Don't Be Drunk - ways for adult fanons cut down on alcohol consumption to within government lower-risk guidelines.
  • Get Going Everyday - why it's important to lead an active lifestyle and ways for all fanon characters to do this cheaply and easily.

Change 4 Life Sports Clubs

Change 4 Life Sports Clubs were designed by Change 4 Life in 2016 to increase physical activity levels to less active characters in elementary and middle schools by:

  • Using multi-sport themes (elementary) or alternative school sports (middle)
  • Using the inspiration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games
  • Responding to what characters want
  • Establishing a habit of regular participation
  • Developing real sense of belonging
  • Changing behaviors relating to key health outcomes (including healthy eating, physical activity, and emotional health)
