  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for a sweet alternative, add banana or apple instead.

  • To help cut back on sugary drinks start small. Don't have them in your house by avoiding the soft drink aisle at the supermarket. Or even try to keep a jug of water in the fridge instead. If water isn't your thing, why not try swapping sugary drinks with milk instead? Remember, every small step counts.

  • Make it easy for your child to participate in a meal by providing some food that he or she likes in combination with something new.

  • Frozen vegies are just as nutritious as the fresh variety - plus they're great value and extremely convenient.

  • Larger serve sizes may be needed for children who are taller or more active.
