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 using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.

  • Encourage your child to drink plenty of tap water. Draw up a chart to record how much water they are drinking each day.

  • Get the kids involved with preparing vegies! Younger children can use their hands to shred lettuce and wash vegies, while older kids can be taught how to safely use a peeler. For more ideas visit the Fresh Tastes: healthy food at school section of this website.

  • Try different fruit for their different textures - apples for their crunch, bananas for their smoothness, and oranges for their juiciness.

  • If you're short on time, try a simple meal like tuna and packaged salad or pesto pasta made with pesto in a jar. For more ideas check out our simple and low cost Recipes.
