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 using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.
Try to limit or avoid sugary drinks. Energy and sport drinks, flavoured mineral waters, cordials, iced teas, sweetened waters, sports waters, sugar sweetened crushed ice drinks, fruit drinks and, of course, soft drinks can contain up to 10 teaspoons of sugar per can. Check to see how much sugar is in all of your drinks and consider tap water instead.
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.

It's not always easy but try to eat a whole piece of fruit (like an orange) instead of drinking fruit juice. More nutrients, less sugar.
