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.


  • Encourage your child to drink plenty of tap water. Draw up a chart to record how much water they are drinking each day.

  • Drinking tap water instead of sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will save you money.

  • It's easy to confuse hunger for thirst. Next time you think you're hungry have a glass of tap water first. Then if you're still hungry, have something to eat.

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • Make a fun "canoe" out of cucumbers by slicing in half lengthways, scooping out the flesh and filling with soft cheese, or tuna - then sit it on a green sea of fresh shredded lettuce. For more ideas check out our Recipes.
