  • Larger serve sizes may be needed for children who are taller or more active.

  • To help cut back on sugary drinks start small. Don't have them in your house by avoiding the soft drink aisle at the supermarket. Or even try to keep a jug of water in the fridge instead. If water isn't your thing, why not try swapping sugary drinks with milk instead? Remember, every small step counts.

  • Off to a sporting event? Pack some healthy snacks so you'll be less tempted by the high fat, high sugar foods on offer at the game. This tip can apply to any event or activity outside of the house.

  • Kids do better with regular meals and snacks rather than grazing throughout the day. It’s not always easy, but try to offer 5-6 structured meals/snacks each day.

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