  • 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 serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.

  • Let the kids choose a new type of vegie to use in a stir fry - like mushrooms or Chinese greens. For more ideas check out our Recipes.

  • In the supermarket, it's OK to say no to your kids when they ask for junk food. Say yes and their expectations for junk food could set in.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat most meals at the dinner table away from distractions such as TV or other electronic screens.
