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.


  • It's best to avoid or limit diet soft drinks. Some studies show they have been associated with adverse health consequences such as overeating, weight gain and dental erosion.

  • Try new foods with your child and talk to them about the taste, texture, smell and look.

  • Try to choose fresh foods over processed foods. See the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for more information.  

  • For healthy meal ideas check out our Recipes.

  • Try to create a safe and happy mealtime. Talk to your children about what they did during the day rather than focusing on how much or whether they're eating.
