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.


  • If you're going to get fast-food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for water.

  • It's best to avoid or limit diet soft drinks. Some studies show they have been associated with adverse health consequences such as overeating, weight gain and dental erosion.

  • A healthy sandwich is as simple as two slices of wholegrain bread, one slice of lean meat, chicken or fish and one cup of salad.

  • Kids do better with regular meals and snacks rather than grazing throughout the day. It’s not always easy, but try to offer 5-6 structured meals/snacks each day.

  • A salad is quick and easy to prepare in summer. If you run out of time pick up a pre-made salad from the supermarket.
