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.

  • Kids do better with regular meals and snacks rather than grazing throughout the day. It’s not always easy, but try to offer 5-6 structured meals/snacks each day.

  • 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).

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.

  • Try to drink plenty of tap water every day. It contains fluoride to keep your teeth healthy.
