  • 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.

  • You can introduce your baby to vegetables from around 6 months of age. When cooking your family meal, make extra vegies, then puree and freeze them in ice-cube trays.

  • Tinned legumes and vegies are a great way to make sure you've always got serves ready to go. Try throwing some tinned beans, lentils or chickpeas into a salad to give you a boost of fibre and protein and help keep you full until dinner time. Why not stock up this week?

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.

  • For a healthier option, go with steamed rice instead of fried rice, or boiled noodles instead of fried noodles.
