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.

  • While fruits contain vitamins and minerals our body needs, they also have high levels of natural sugars so just remember to keep everything in balance. Try replacing a couple of serves of fruit for vegies.

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

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for fun colour instead, toss in some fresh berries. For more recipe ideas click here.

  • To help cut back on sugary drinks start small. Don't have them in your house by avoiding the soft drink aisle at the supermarket. Or even try to keep a jug of water in the fridge instead. If water isn't your thing, why not try swapping sugary drinks with milk instead? Remember, every small step counts.
