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.


  • 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.

  • Try your best to avoid using rewards (such as dessert) to encourage your child to eat. Instead, praise your child with words (or maybe the promise of kicking a ball outside) when they try something new.

  • 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 don't enjoy eating a traditional breakfast, try making a fruit smoothie. For recipe ideas click here.

  • 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.
