  • Read the back of the label on packaged foods. Sugar can be disguised as the following: fructose, sucrose, maltose, glucose, corn syrup and molasses. "Sugar free" products often have an artificial sugar substitute.

  • Offer children a smaller meal size than adults e.g. for younger children, make smaller sized rissoles.

  • Wondering how to eat more beans and legumes?  Check out our Chicken and Bean Fajitas recipe. 

  • Have a go at cutting back on sugary drinks by just one soft drink a day to start with. Try to replace a soft drink with sparkling plain water or add slices of lemon, lime or mint to your water for that extra zing. Remember, small changes can make a big difference!
