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!
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.
Meal times are a great time for you to connect with your family. This week plan a picnic and head outdoors with a rug and enjoy your time together.
Try a 'Fruit Rainbow' week. Try eating a different coloured fruit each day. For example strawberry (red), banana (yellow), pear (green).
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?
