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.


  • The best drink to have is tap water, so make sure everyone in the house has their own drink bottle filled and in the fridge ready to go for when thirst hits. Drinking tap water instead of buying sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will also save you money.

  • Try adding lemon or lime slices to tap water to make it tastier.

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for fun colour instead, toss in some fresh berries. For more recipe ideas click here.

  • The BUPA FoodSwitch app lets you scan the barcodes of food or drink items at the supermarket, making it easier to find healthier grocery options. It's a great app to help your family on the road to healthier eating habits. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.
