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

  • It can be hard but try to include a variety of different coloured vegetables each day (e.g. red, orange, yellow, green, blue/purple and white) to give your family's bodies the nutrients they need to stay healthy.

  • Kids do better with regular meals and snacks rather than grazing throughout the day. It’s not always easy, but try to offer 5-6 structured meals/snacks each day.

  • Try as best as you can to include vegetables at meals and snacks throughout the day. Try salt-reduced baked beans on wholegrain toast, poached eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach or vegie sticks and dip. Check out our Recipes for more ideas. 

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for a sweet alternative, add banana or apple instead.
