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.

  • Keep food safe. When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs, always use separate cutting boards, plates and utensils from ready-to-eat foods.

  • If you're going to get fast-food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for water.

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

  • Try adding lemon or lime slices to tap water to make it tastier.
