  • If you don't enjoy eating a traditional breakfast, try making a fruit smoothie. For recipe ideas click here.

  • 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!

  • Choose fruit and vegies in season. They taste great and are often cheaper too - check out our guide to what's in season now.

  • At the end of a meal, instead of asking "Are you finished?" ask "Is your tummy full?". This helps your child pay attention to feelings of hunger and fullness.

  • On days when you don't have time to cook, there are lots of small ways you can make takeaway healthier. If you're getting fish and chips choose grilled fish instead of battered or deep-fried and swap the chips for a salad.
