Tips to help you eat well

This collection of handy tips will help you and your family enjoy better eating habits. But don’t forget to also check out our ‘Good Habits’ recipes, as well as challenges to keep your family motivated.


  • Kids often enjoy buffet style meals. It gives them independence and helps them to choose foods that match their food preferences and appetite. Place all the toppings on the table and allow family members to prepare their own Chicken and Bean Fajitas

  • Why not join up with a friend, another family or a neighbour and start a vegie patch in the backyard? You could even swap the vegies you grow.

  • Try to drink plenty of tap water every day. It contains fluoride to keep your teeth healthy.

  • Eat at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV or other electronic devices. This makes it easier to pay attention to how much we're eating.

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.
