  • 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.

  • You can introduce your baby to vegetables from around 6 months of age. When cooking your family meal, make extra vegies, then puree and freeze them in ice-cube trays.

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

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

    • 1 cup of raw salad.
