The BUPA FoodSwitch app lets you scan the barcodes of food or drink items at the supermarket, making it easier to find healthier grocery options. It's a great app to help your family on the road to healthier eating habits. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.
Nuts are suitable for children from 3 years of age (but keep these at home and avoid nuts when sending your children to early childhood centres or school).
Watch out for unhealthy foods that are marketed as healthy options. For example, organic potato chips are still potato chips - "organic" just refers to the way the ingredients are grown.
It's not always easy but try to eat healthy foods in front of your kids - because they learn by doing what you do. Visit ACT Health's Women, Youth and Children Nutrition Service for more information.
