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.

  • Keep food safe. When handling raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs, always use separate cutting boards, plates and utensils from ready-to-eat foods.

  • Try to buy juice with no added sugar and limit by half to one cup per day for young children.

  • Soft drinks contain a lot of sugar but have no nutritional value and have been linked to tooth decay and weight gain.

  • If you eat fast food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for tap water (take your own drink bottle!).
