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.


  • Make it easy for your child to participate in a meal by providing some food that he or she likes in combination with something new.

  • Packaged foods can often be high in salt, fat, sugar and kilojoules. Find out what is in the food you're eating and make better food choices when grocery shopping for you and your family.

  • Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.

  • While fruits contain vitamins and minerals our body needs, they also have high levels of natural sugars so just remember to keep everything in balance. Try replacing a couple of serves of fruit for vegies.

  • Get to know your supermarket and where healthy foods are kept so you can avoid the temptation of the confectionery and sugary drink aisles.
