Tips to help you eat well

This collection of handy tips will help you and your family enjoy better eating habits. But don’t forget to also check out our ‘Good Habits’ recipes, as well as challenges to keep your family motivated.


  • Try not to fall for the specials. That item on special might be good value, but ask yourself: "do we really need this?".

  • It's not always easy but try to eat a whole piece of fruit (like an orange) instead of drinking fruit juice. More nutrients, less sugar.

  • Try your best to avoid using rewards (such as dessert) to encourage your child to eat. Instead, praise your child with words (or maybe the promise of kicking a ball outside) when they try something new.

  • The best drink to have is tap water, so make sure everyone in the house has their own drink bottle filled and in the fridge ready to go for when thirst hits. Drinking tap water instead of buying sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will also save you money.

  • Avoid overfilling your child's plate. You'll waste less food and they won't overeat. Besides... they can always ask for seconds!
