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.


  • 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.

  • Tinned legumes and vegies are a great way to make sure you've always got serves ready to go. Try throwing some tinned beans, lentils or chickpeas into a salad to give you a boost of fibre and protein and help keep you full until dinner time. Why not stock up this week?

  • Try to choose fresh foods over processed foods. See the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for more information.  

  • Let the kids choose a new type of vegie to use in a stir fry - like mushrooms or Chinese greens. For more ideas check out our Recipes.

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