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!
Challenge your kids to help you with dinner one or two days this week. With your help, they could do anything from washing vegies, putting frozen vegies on an oven tray, stirring the pot on the stove, through to setting the table.
Try a 'Vegie Rainbow' this week. Try eating seven different coloured vegetables over the week. For example carrots (orange), beetroot (purple), broccoli (green), red capsicum (red), squash (yellow), parsnip (white) and cooked mushrooms (brown).
Can you include one or two serves of vegetables in your family’s weekend breakfasts for two weeks?
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.
Even if you’re not experienced in the kitchen, cook a simple, healthy meal at home from our Recipe collection – with the kids’ help, of course!
