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.


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

  • Getting hungry while you're out and about? Plan ahead and pack some fresh fruit, vegie sticks, nuts or cheese and crackers.

  • It's not always easy but if you don't keep junk food in the house, it's much easier to stick to eating healthily. Plus you'll avoid the tantrums that can arise when the kids know there are lollies nearby!

  • 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.

  • 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.
