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.


  • A healthy sandwich is as simple as two slices of wholegrain bread, one slice of lean meat, chicken or fish and one cup of salad.

  • Would you eat 10 teaspoons of sugar in one go? That's how much sugar is in a regular can of soft drink with about 6 teaspoons in a fruit juice box. Replace one sugary drink per day with a glass of tap water.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.

  • Keep some tinned vegies, beans, lentils and chickpeas in the house - they're an excellent alternative to meat. Mix them into a salad, soup or casserole for extra protein, iron and fibre.

  • Cook extra portions of vegies at dinnertime and use the leftovers for lunches the next day.
