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

  • Sugary drinks contain a lot of sugar but have no nutritional value and have been linked to tooth decay and weight gain.

  • Try adding lemon or lime slices to tap water to make it tastier.

  • Keep food safe. When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs, always use separate cutting boards, plates and utensils from ready-to-eat foods.

  • Watch out for unhealthy foods that are marketed as healthy options. For example, organic potato chips are still potato chips - "organic" just refers to the way the ingredients are grown.
