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.


  • Think of snacks as mini meals and make them healthy. Offer a variety of choices based on the five food groups across the day.

  • Try to buy juice with no added sugar and limit by half to one cup per day for young children.

  • Try your best to include different legumes such as green peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas each day. If you can't include them one day, try again the next day.

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for fun colour instead, toss in some fresh berries. For more recipe ideas click here.

  • We know how hard it can be, but children are less likely to eat when there is pressure, force or bribery.
