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.


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

  • 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 adding lemon or lime slices to tap water to make it tastier.

  • Try different fruit for their different textures - apples for their crunch, bananas for their smoothness, and oranges for their juiciness.

  • Try to choose fresh foods over processed foods. See the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for more information.
