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.


  • Try to buy juice with no added sugar and limit by half to one cup per day for young children.

  • Try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach - you'll be more likely to give into tempting unhealthy foods. Eat a healthy snack, such as a piece of fruit, before leaving home.

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

  • Try your best to avoid using rewards (such as dessert) to encourage your child to eat. Instead, praise your child with words (or maybe the promise of kicking a ball outside) when they try something new.

  • If your kids are getting hungry while you're on the move, one way to avoid fast-food temptation is by always having some fruit in your bag.
