  • Try to drink plenty of tap water every day. It contains fluoride to keep your teeth healthy.

  • Encourage your child to drink plenty of tap water. Draw up a chart to record how much water they are drinking each day.

  • Think of snacks as mini meals and make them healthy. Offer a variety of choices based on the five food groups across the day.

  • It's not always easy but if you don't keep junk food in the house, it's much easier to stick to eating healthily. Plus you'll avoid the tantrums that can arise when the kids know there are lollies nearby!

  • Try new foods with your child and talk to them about the taste, texture, smell and look.
