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 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!

  • Check out BUPA's FoodSwitch app to see how much sugar is in your favourite drinks, snacks and cereals. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.

  • Kids have small stomachs and high energy needs so snacks are an important part of healthy eating. It can be hard but try your best to offer a variety of choices from the five food groups.

  • Poach, boil or scramble one or two eggs and serve with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and multigrain toast. Healthy, tasty and easy! For more ideas, check out our Recipes.
