  • If you're short on time, try a simple meal like tuna and packaged salad or pesto pasta made with pesto in a jar. For more ideas check out our simple and low cost Recipes.

  • A healthy sandwich is as simple as two slices of wholegrain bread, one slice of lean meat, chicken or fish and one cup of salad.

  • It's best to try not to drink diet soft drinks as an alternative. Some studies show they have been associated with adverse health consequences such as overeating, weight gain and dental erosion.

  • It's not always easy but try to involve your kids in preparing meals. Research shows that not only does it build a child's skills and confidence, children who help prepare food are more likely to eat it.

  • Off to a sporting event? Pack some healthy snacks so you'll be less tempted by the high fat, high sugar foods on offer at the game. This tip can apply to any event or activity outside of the house.
