  • Encourage your child to drink plenty of tap water. Draw up a chart to record how much water they are drinking each day.

  • Low or reduced fat dairy foods are suitable for children over 2 years of age.

  • Try as best as you can to include vegetables at meals and snacks throughout the day. Try salt-reduced baked beans on wholegrain toast, poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach or vegie sticks and dip. Check out our Recipes for more ideas. 

  • 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.

  • Keep food safe. When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs, always use separate cutting boards, plates and utensils from ready-to-eat foods.
