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.


  • If you're looking for a sweet snack, try raisin toast, a plain scone, English muffins, dried fruit and nuts, fruit smoothies or plain yoghurt with fruit. Check out the Tuckatalk Factsheets for more ideas.  

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • Larger serve sizes may be needed for children who are taller or more active.

  • Getting hungry while you're out and about? Plan ahead and pack some fresh fruit, vegie sticks, nuts or cheese and crackers.

  • Watch out for unhealthy foods that are marketed as healthy options. For example, organic potato chips are still potato chips - "organic" just refers to the way the ingredients are grown.
