  • 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.

  • It's not always easy but try to involve your kids in preparing meals. Research shows that not only does it build a child's skills and confidence, children who help prepare food are more likely to eat it.

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