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 serve of fruit equals:

    • 1 medium-sized piece of fruit, such as an apple, banana, orange or pear 
    • 2 small pieces of fruit, such as apricots, kiwi fruits or plums, or 
    • 1 cup of tinned fruit (with no added sugar).

  • When it comes to eating well, you can't go past the nutrients you'll get from fruit and vegies to help you feel good and look good. Check out our breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack Recipes

  • Keep food safe. Always wash hands before cooking. It's best to keep food hot, at or above 60' celsius, or cold, at or below 5' celsius. 

  • We know how hard it can be but try to swap cakes and biscuits for raisin toast, crumpets, low fat muffins, pancakes and pikelets.

  • Fresh herbs straight from your garden are lovely but the good news is that dried herbs actually contain more concentrated amounts of nutrients due to the absence of the water component. Dried herbs also have a longer shelf-life (but remember that they don’t last forever) and therefore can be a more cost-effective option than purchasing fresh herbs.
