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!

  • Try to shop once for the whole week to save time and money.

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

  • 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.

  • It's not always easy but keep offering a range of foods from the Five Food Groups, even if your child refuses them. It might take between 10 to 15 attempts, but there's a good chance they'll learn to enjoy a variety of healthy food eventually!
