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.


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

  • Plan your healthy meals for the week, then make a shopping list to ensure you get everything you need in one trip.

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

  • Like Mexican food? Try making your own Mexican seasoning by combining 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, dried oregano, and sweet paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder.

  • Fruit is great for on-the-go snacks. Have a bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen bench and replace your normal morning tea with a piece. There are also plenty of snack recipes in our Recipes section that include fruit such as Apricot and Coconut balls and Energy Slice.
