  • Teach your child to listen to their body's signals and ask "is your tummy telling you you’re full?".

  • Think of snacks as mini meals and make them healthy. Offer a variety of choices based on the five food groups across the day.

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.

  • At snack time, offer your child vegies with a dip or spread. Try low-fat cream cheese, peanut butter, avocado, salsa dip or hummus. For more healthy snack ideas, check out our Recipes.
