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

  • It can be hard but try to include a variety of different coloured vegetables each day (e.g. red, orange, yellow, green, blue/purple and white) to give your family's bodies the nutrients they need to stay healthy.

  • 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!

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.

  • At snack time, offer your child vegies with a dip or spread. Try low-fat cream cheese, peanut butter, avocado, salsa dip or hummus. For more healthy snack ideas, check out our Recipes.
