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.

  • Offer children a smaller meal size than adults e.g. for younger children, make smaller sized rissoles.

  • Getting hungry while you're out and about? Plan ahead and pack some fresh fruit, vegie sticks, nuts or cheese and crackers.

  • Eating vegies is a great way to maintain a healthy weight. If you're worried about your child's weight, talk with your GP or make an appointment with a dietitian in ACT Health's Women, Youth and Children Nutrition team

  • Poach, boil or scramble one or two eggs and serve with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and multigrain toast. Healthy, tasty and easy! For more ideas, check out our Recipes.
