Isn’t it to do with the meaning of ‘raise’? ‘Raised happily’ and ‘raised healthily’ seem to mean something different.

Peter Harvey

In what way? They could mean 'in a happy/healthy' environment with the adverb referring to the parents' way of doing things, or it could mean 'being happy/healthy' from the child's point of view.

Barrie England

Raised happily = raised in a happy manner.

Raised happy = raised in such a way that happiness was the result.

Or something. Perhaps.
