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.


  • 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.

  • Try using our Habit tracker to track how many vegies your family eats each week. You might be surprised that you are actually getting more serves into your diet than you think!

  • 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.

  • It's OK to let your children serve themselves (with your help) at mealtime - it will help them learn to listen to their body and develop their understanding of the difference between 'hungry' and 'full'. Remember, their appetite will vary from meal to meal and day to day.

  • Choose small sizes over large for your milk-based coffee to receive all the nutrition and benefits of  milk and coffee while cutting your kilojoule intake by 50%. Tip courtesy of Nutrition Australia ACT Inc.
