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.

  • At snack time, offer your child vegies with a dip or spread. Try low-fat cream cheese, peanut butter, avocado, salsa dip or hummus. For more healthy snack ideas, check out our Recipes.

  • Drinking tap water instead of sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will save you money.

  • Try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach - you'll be more likely to give into tempting unhealthy foods. Eat a healthy snack, such as a piece of fruit, before leaving home.

  • If you're looking for a sweet snack, try raisin toast, a plain scone, English muffins, dried fruit and nuts, fruit smoothies or plain yoghurt with fruit. Check out the Tuckatalk Factsheets for more ideas.
