  • Get the kids involved with preparing vegies! Younger children can use their hands to shred lettuce and wash vegies, while older kids can be taught how to safely use a peeler. For more ideas visit the Fresh Tastes: healthy food at school section of this website.

  • If you're short on time, try a simple meal like tuna and packaged salad or pesto pasta made with pesto in a jar. For more ideas check out our simple and low cost Recipes.

  • Choose fruit and vegies in season. They taste great and are often cheaper too - check out our guide to what's in season now.

  • If you're going to get fast-food, try to swap fries for a side salad, a sundae for a fruit salad and soft drink for water.

  • When planning meals, make enough to include leftovers where possible and then set aside for tomorrow's lunch!
