Nope, sorry! Itīs not grammatically correct, and it would also be repetitive.

obohnhoff is right. Less healthy. By the way, in theory we have either more or er for comparison. The usage of both together however e.g. more faster, more better, more fairer, more happier etc is becoming quite common, but it doesnīt work with less...er.

It would also be a contradiction, since "healthier" means "more healthy", so adding "less" would not work at all.
