  • Add vegies like carrot or zucchini to spaghetti bolognaise, lasagne, casseroles, muffins and much more. It's an easy way to get more vegies in your day. For more ideas check out our Recipes.

  • At snack time, offer your child vegies with a dip or spread. Try low-fat cream cheese, peanut butter, avocado, salsa dip or hummus. For more healthy snack ideas, check out our Recipes.

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

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.

  • Kids have small stomachs and high energy needs so snacks are an important part of healthy eating. It can be hard but try your best to offer a variety of choices from the five food groups.
