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 your best to include different legumes such as green peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas each day. If you can't include them one day, try again the next day.

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

  • Have a go at cutting back on sugary drinks by just one soft drink a day to start with. Try to replace a soft drink with sparkling plain water or add slices of lemon, lime or mint to your water for that extra zing. Remember, small changes can make a big difference!

  • 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.
