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.


  • Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.

  • Try different fruit for their different textures - apples for their crunch, bananas for their smoothness, and oranges for their juiciness.

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

  • With so much nutritional information on food labels they can be quite confusing. The ingredient listed first is present in the largest amount - so if sugar is first on the list, it means the product is high in sugar. Download the shopping helper here.

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