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.

  • Nuts are suitable for children from 3 years of age (but keep these at home and avoid nuts when sending your children to early childhood centres or school).

  • A salad is quick and easy to prepare in summer. If you run out of time pick up a pre-made salad from the supermarket.

  • 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!

  • 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.
