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!
Think beyond the dinner table and have veggies in your family's breakfast every day this week (if you don't already!). Try avocado, rocket and tomato on wholegrain toast, or poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach. Or, use your left over veggies from the night before to make a super quick veggie omelette in the morning.
It is important for all family members to stay hydrated, especially in the warmer months. This week have all family members track how much water they are drinking each day using the 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.
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.
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).
