Challenge your family to eat well

Challenge your family to eat well
A great way to change your family’s eating habits for the better is to set yourselves a challenge. We've even created some tips to help you start eating better today!


  • Can everyone in your family take their water bottle with them every day for the next week?

  • Think beyond the dinner table and add vegies to your family's breakfast for two or three days of the week (if you don't already!). Try reduced salt baked beans on wholegrain toast, or poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach. Or, use your leftover vegies from the night before to make a super quick vegie omelette in the morning.

  • Meal times are a great time for you to connect with your family. This week plan a picnic and head outdoors with a rug and enjoy your time together.

  • Try for you and your family to cut down by one sugary drink a day for the next week. If you don't succeed one week, don't beat yourself up and try again the next week.

  • Try eating six different coloured vegies over a week. For example carrots (orange), beetroot (purple), broccoli (green), red capsicum (red), squash (yellow) and parsnip (white).
