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 easy to confuse hunger for thirst. Next time you think you're hungry have a glass of tap water first. Then if you're still hungry, have something to eat.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat a whole piece of fruit (like an orange) instead of drinking fruit juice. More nutrients, less sugar.

  • If you eat fast food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for tap water (take your own drink bottle!).

  • 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.
