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

  • Frozen vegies are just as nutritious as the fresh variety - plus they're great value and extremely convenient.

  • Offer children a smaller meal size than adults e.g. for younger children, make smaller sized rissoles.

  • Try limiting creamy pastas, commercially baked or fried foods and opt for a side salad instead of fries. Small changes can make a big difference.
