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.


  • 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.

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

  • The best drink to have is tap water, so make sure everyone in the house has their own drink bottle filled and in the fridge ready to go for when thirst hits. Drinking tap water instead of buying sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will also save you money.

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

  • To help cut back on sugary drinks start small. Don't have them in your house by avoiding the soft drink aisle at the supermarket. Or even try to keep a jug of water in the fridge instead. If water isn't your thing, why not try swapping sugary drinks with milk instead? Remember, every small step counts.
