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 new foods with your child and talk to them about the taste, texture, smell and look.

  • Cook extra portions of vegies at dinnertime and use the leftovers for lunches the next day.

  • Poach, boil or scramble one or two eggs and serve with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and multigrain toast. Healthy, tasty and easy! For more ideas, check out our Recipes.

  • Use family meal times to try unfamiliar foods. This isn't always easy - you may need to offer food several times before your child is willing to try it and later enjoy it.
