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!
Add a different vegie to your dinner table each night this week as a side to your meal. Have everyone in the family give it a taste - you don't have to eat it all. You might all discover some vegies that you can enjoy together and add to your family's menu.
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?
Can everyone in your family carry a water bottle each day for the next week?
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.
