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

  • Get to know your supermarket and where healthy foods are kept so you can avoid the temptation of the confectionery and sugary drink aisles.

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • The BUPA FoodSwitch app lets you scan the barcodes of food or drink items at the supermarket, making it easier to find healthier grocery options. It's a great app to help your family on the road to healthier eating habits. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.
