  • Off to a sporting event? Pack some healthy snacks so you'll be less tempted by the high fat, high sugar foods on offer at the game. This tip can apply to any event or activity outside of the house.

  • Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.

  • For healthy meal ideas check out our Recipes.

  • It's easy to confuse hunger for thirst. Next time you think you're hungry have a glass of tap water first. Then if you're still hungry, have something to eat.
