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.


  • 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.

  • Fruit is great for on-the-go snacks. Have a bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen bench and replace your normal morning tea with a piece. There are also plenty of snack recipes in our Recipes section that include fruit such as Apricot and Coconut balls and Energy Slice.

  • Frozen vegies are just as nutritious as the fresh variety - plus they're great value and extremely convenient.

  • If you don't enjoy eating a traditional breakfast, try making a fruit smoothie. For recipe ideas click here.

  • Use child-sized plates and bowls for your kids. It makes it easier to tell if they're getting the right portion size.
