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.


  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • Try not to fall for the specials. That item on special might be good value, but ask yourself: "do we really need this?".

  • Read the back of the label on packaged foods. Sugar can be disguised as the following: fructose, sucrose, maltose, glucose, corn syrup and molasses. "Sugar free" products often have an artificial sugar substitute.

  • Try different fruit for their different textures - apples for their crunch, bananas for their smoothness, and oranges for their juiciness.

  • When planning meals, make enough to include leftovers where possible and then set aside for tomorrow's lunch!
