Challenge your family to eat well
A great way to change your family’s eating habits for the better is to set yourselves a challenge. We've even created some tips to help you start eating better today!
Can you and your family cut down by one sugary drink a day for one week? If you don't succeed one week, don’t beat yourself up and try again the next week.
Think beyond the dinner table and add vegies to your family's breakfast for two or three days of the week (if you don't already!). Try reduced salt baked beans on wholegrain toast, or poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach. Or, use your leftover vegies from the night before to make a super quick vegie omelette in the morning.
Try a 'Vegie Rainbow' this week. Try eating seven different coloured vegetables over the week. For example carrots (orange), beetroot (purple), broccoli (green), red capsicum (red), squash (yellow), parsnip (white) and cooked mushrooms (brown).
Can you include one or two serves of vegetables in your family’s weekend breakfasts for two weeks?
Add a different vegie to your dinner table each night this week as a side to your meal. Have everyone in the family give it a taste - you don't have to eat it all. You might all discover some vegies that you can enjoy together and add to your family's menu.
