  • Are you trying to decrease your salt intake? Use herbs and spices liberally in cooking to give flavour without the need to add salt. Tip courtesy of Nutrition Australia ACT Inc.

  • When planning meals, make enough to include leftovers where possible and then set aside for tomorrow's lunch!

  • 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.

  • Try to buy juice with no added sugar and limit by half to one cup per day for young children.
