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.


  • Eat at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV or other electronic devices. This makes it easier to pay attention to how much we're eating.

  • It's OK for kids to leave food on their plate. Avoid praising an empty plate - your kids should stop eating when they're full, not when the plate's been emptied.

  • Try not to fall for the specials. That item on special might be good value, but ask yourself: "do we really need this?".

  • We know how hard it can be but try to swap cakes and biscuits for raisin toast, crumpets, low fat muffins, pancakes and pikelets.

  • Try to shop once for the whole week to save time and money.
