  • A serve of vegies equals:

    • 1/2 cup of most types of cooked vegies, or
    • 1 cup of raw salad.

  • When things are busy and you don't have time to cook, there's lots of small ways you can make takeaway healthier. If you're getting fish and chips choose grilled fish instead of battered or deep fried.

  • 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 to choose fresh foods over processed foods. See the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for more information.  

  • If you're short on time, try a simple meal like tuna and packaged salad or pesto pasta made with pesto in a jar. For more ideas check out our simple and low cost Recipes.
