  • It's an easy one to forget but try to take your own water bottle when you leave the house so you're not tempted to buy sugary drinks. Leave a spare bottle in the boot of your car for emergencies.

  • Ready-made vegie-based soups (without the noodles) from the supermarket can be a good healthy option - just check they don’t have added fat and salt.

  • The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend limiting your intake of sugar-sweetened soft drinks, cordials, fruit drinks, vitamin waters, energy and sports drinks.

  • For a healthier option, go with steamed rice instead of fried rice, or boiled noodles instead of fried noodles. 

  • Try adding lemon or lime slices to tap water to make it tastier.
