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.

  • Try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach - you'll be more likely to give into tempting unhealthy foods. Eat a healthy snack, such as a piece of fruit, before leaving home.

  • Try as best as you can to include vegetables at meals and snacks throughout the day. Try salt-reduced baked beans on wholegrain toast, poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach or vegie sticks and dip. Check out our Recipes for more ideas. 

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • Like Mexican food? Try making your own Mexican seasoning by combining 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, dried oregano, and sweet paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder.
