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.


  • Frozen vegies are just as nutritious as the fresh variety - plus they're great value and extremely convenient.

  • At the end of a meal, instead of asking "Are you finished?" ask "Is your tummy full?". This helps your child pay attention to feelings of hunger and fullness.

  • If you're eating out, try to choose from the Five Food Groups and don't be tempted to supersize! It might seem like better value for money, but it's actually costing your family's health a great deal more!

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.

  • If you have a fussy eater aged 1 to 5 in the family, ACT Health runs free, community-based groups to help you. Register now for the Coping with Fussy Eaters group.
