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.


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

  • 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.

  • Getting hungry while you're out and about? Plan ahead and pack some fresh fruit, vegie sticks, nuts or cheese and crackers.

  • The best drink to keep the family hydrated every day is tap water. Keep a jug of chilled tap water in the fridge so everyone can have chilled water when thirst hits.

  • If you're looking for a sweet snack, try raisin toast, a plain scone, English muffins, dried fruit and nuts, fruit smoothies or plain yoghurt with fruit. Check out the Tuckatalk Factsheets for more ideas.
