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. 

  • If you don't enjoy eating a traditional breakfast, try making a fruit smoothie. For recipe ideas click here.

  • The BUPA FoodSwitch app lets you scan the barcodes of food or drink items at the supermarket, making it easier to find healthier grocery options. It's a great app to help your family on the road to healthier eating habits. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

  • We know how hard it can be but try to swap cakes and biscuits for raisin toast, crumpets, low fat muffins, pancakes and pikelets.

  • Soup is great in winter and can be made at home with lots of vegies (it's also a good way to use up whatever is left in the fridge!). Check out our Recipes for more ideas.
