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

  • Try using our Habit tracker to track how many vegies your family eats each week. You might be surprised that you are actually getting more serves into your diet than you think!

  • Eating vegies is a great way to maintain a healthy weight. If you're worried about your child's weight, talk with your GP or make an appointment with a dietitian in ACT Health's Women, Youth and Children Nutrition team
