Being healthy's about more than eating fruit. And it means different things to different people, too.

Here are some things we think about when we hear the word 'healthy':

  • Physical and mental
  • Exercise and good diet
  • Having a healthy environment – smoke free
  • Healthy emotional environment
  • Happy
  • Good relationships with people
  • Free from mental illness
  • Having freedom
  • Having rights to opinions – self esteem
  • Friends make you feel healthy

Healthy in your own words.
