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 six different coloured vegies over a week. For example carrots (orange), beetroot (purple), broccoli (green), red capsicum (red), squash (yellow) and parsnip (white).
Try for you and your family to cut down by one sugary drink a day for the next 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.
Can everyone in your family carry a water bottle each day for the next week?
Challenge your kids to help you with dinner one or two days this week. With your help, they could do anything from washing vegies, putting frozen vegies on an oven tray, stirring the pot on the stove, through to setting the table.
