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.


  • It's not always easy but if you don't keep junk food in the house, it's much easier to stick to eating healthily. Plus you'll avoid the tantrums that can arise when the kids know there are lollies nearby!

  • Low or reduced fat dairy foods are suitable for children over 2 years of age.

  • Would you eat 10 teaspoons of sugar in one go? That's how much sugar is in a regular can of soft drink with about 6 teaspoons in a fruit juice box. Replace one sugary drink per day with a glass of tap water.

  • 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.

  • Frozen vegies are just as nutritious as the fresh variety - plus they're great value and extremely convenient.
