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.


  • Eat at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV or other electronic devices. This makes it easier to pay attention to how much we're eating.

  • When shopping with the kids, distract them from pestering you for junk food by making a fun scavenger hunt game to help you find all the healthy food items on your list. Give them their own pull-along basket to help.

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for fun colour instead, toss in some fresh berries. For more recipe ideas click here.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat a whole piece of fruit (like an orange) instead of drinking fruit juice. More nutrients, less sugar.

  • Try using our Habit tracker to track how many vegies your family eats each week. You might be surprised that you are actually getting more serves into your diet than you think!
