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.


  • Check out BUPA's FoodSwitch app to see how much sugar is in your favourite drinks, snacks and cereals. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.

  • 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.

  • At snack time, offer your child vegies with a dip or spread. Try low-fat cream cheese, peanut butter, avocado, salsa dip or hummus. For more healthy snack ideas, check out our Recipes.

  • The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting your intake of sugar-sweetened soft drinks, cordials, fruit drinks, vitamin waters, energy and sports drinks.
