  • When things are busy and you don't have time to cook, there's lots of small ways you can make takeaway healthier. If you're getting fish and chips choose grilled fish instead of battered or deep fried.

  • Keep food safe. Always wash hands before cooking. It's best to keep food hot, at or above 60' celsius, or cold, at or below 5' celsius. 

  • The best drink to keep the family hydrated every day is tap water. Keep a jug of chilled tap water in the fridge so everyone can have chilled water when thirst hits.

  • Low or reduced fat dairy foods are suitable for children over 2 years of age.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.
