  • If you're going to get fast-food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for water.

  • 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.

  • A serve of vegies equals:

    • 1/2 cup of most types of cooked vegies, or
    • 1 cup of raw salad.

  • 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.
