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.


  • Keep food safe. Always wash hands before cooking. It's best to keep food hot, at or above 60' celsius, or cold, at or below 5' celsius. 

  • While fruits contain vitamins and minerals our body needs, they also have high levels of natural sugars so just remember to keep everything in balance. Try replacing a couple of serves of fruit for vegies.

  • If your kids are getting hungry while you're on the move, one way to avoid fast-food temptation is by always having some fruit in your bag.

  • On days when you don't have time to cook, there are lots of small ways you can make takeaway healthier. If you're getting fish and chips choose grilled fish instead of battered or deep-fried and swap the chips for a salad.

  • Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.
