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.


  • Do you have ideas you want to share with other families? Submit your own tip here.

  • Get to know your supermarket and where healthy foods are kept so you can avoid the temptation of the confectionery and sugary drink aisles.

  • Try to choose fresh foods over processed foods. See the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for more information.  

  • Why not join up with a friend, another family or a neighbour and start a vegie patch in the backyard? You could even swap the vegies you grow.

  • Use child-sized plates and bowls for your kids. It makes it easier to tell if they're getting the right portion size.
