  • We know how hard it can be, but children are less likely to eat when there is pressure, force or bribery.

  • Plan your healthy meals for the week, then make a shopping list to ensure you get everything you need in one trip.

  • 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.

  • Keep food safe. Always wash hands before cooking. It's best to keep food hot, at or above 60' celsius, or cold, at or below 5' celsius. 

  • Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.
