    give importance to/ for

    What is used with "give importance" to or for? When I looked up dictionary both are possible.

    ...who give importance to themselves and to their health.


    Is it correct and can I use here for instead of to?


    Thanks in advance

    NOT A TEACHER.

    "To" is correct; "for" is not. I've never heard anyone say "Give importance." The expression you're looking for is probably "attach importance to something."
