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!
Try eating a different coloured fruit each day. For example strawberry (red) banana (yellow) pear (green). Record it on your Habit Tracker.
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 eating six different coloured vegies over a week. For example carrots (orange), beetroot (purple), broccoli (green), red capsicum (red), squash (yellow) and parsnip (white).
Challenge your kids to help prepare dinner every day this week. They could do anything from washing vegetables and putting frozen vegetables on an oven tray through to setting the table.
Can you include one or two serves of vegies in your child’s lunch box everyday for two weeks?
