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.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.

  • Try your best to include different legumes such as green peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas each day. If you can't include them one day, try again the next day.

  • Use child-sized plates and bowls for your kids. It makes it easier to tell if they're getting the right portion size. Visit the Australian Dietary Guidelines to find the recommended number of serves by gender and age group.

  • Keep food safe. Always wash hands before cooking. It's best to keep food hot, at or above 60' celsius, or cold, at or below 5' celsius.
