  • Let the kids choose a new type of vegie to use in a stir fry - like mushrooms or Chinese greens. For more ideas check out our Recipes.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Children can enjoy buffet style meals. It gives them independence and helps them to choose foods that match their food preferences and appetite. Place all the toppings on the table and allow family members to prepare their own Fajitas.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.
