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.


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

  • Try to create a safe and happy mealtime. Talk to your children about what they did during the day rather than focusing on how much or whether they're eating.

  • A salad is quick and easy to prepare in summer. If you run out of time pick up a pre-made salad from the supermarket.

  • 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.

  • 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.
