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

  • It's not always easy but try to eat a whole piece of fruit (like an orange) instead of drinking fruit juice. More nutrients, less sugar.

  • Use child-sized plates and bowls for your kids. It makes it easier to tell if they're getting the right portion size. 

  • Try to limit or avoid sugary drinks. Energy and sport drinks, flavoured mineral waters, cordials, iced teas, sweetened waters, sports waters, sugar sweetened crushed ice drinks, fruit drinks and, of course, soft drinks can contain up to 10 teaspoons of sugar per can. Check to see how much sugar is in all of your drinks and consider tap water instead.

  • 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.
