  • Did you know that water makes up around 60% of your body weight? And if our brains don't get enough water, our ability to concentrate can decrease by 13 percent and our short term memory can drop by 7 percent? Drink tap water throughout the day, every day.

  • Cook extra portions of vegies at dinnertime and use the leftovers for lunches the next day.

  • Are you trying to decrease your salt intake? Use herbs and spices liberally in cooking to give flavour without the need to add salt. Tip courtesy of Nutrition Australia ACT Inc.

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

  • Why not join up with a friend, another family or a neighbour and start a vegie patch in the backyard? You could even swap the vegies you grow.
