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!
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).
Try eating a different coloured fruit each day. For example strawberry (red) banana (yellow) pear (green). Record it on your Habit Tracker.
Can you and your family cut down by one sugary drink a day for one week? If you don't succeed one week, don't beat yourself up and try again the next week.
Think beyond the dinner table and have veggies in your family's breakfast every day this week (if you don't already!). Try avocado, rocket and tomato on wholegrain toast, or poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach. Or, use your left over veggies from the night before to make a super quick veggie omelette in the morning.
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.
