Tips to help you eat well

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.


  • Choose fruit and vegies in season. They taste great and are often cheaper too - check out our guide to what's in season now.

  • While fruits contain vitamins and minerals our body needs, they also have high levels of natural sugars so just remember to keep everything in balance. Try replacing a couple of serves of fruit for vegies.

  • Drinking tap water instead of sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will save you money.

  • Many of us use packaged food from time to time. To help work out healthier options, check out the BUPA FoodSwitch app. Simply scan the barcode of the food or drink items to see a list of healthier options based on fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt content. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

  • Use child-sized plates and bowls for your kids. It makes it easier to tell if they're getting the right portion size.
