Soup is great in winter and can be made at home with lots of vegies (it's also a good way to use up whatever is left in the fridge!). Check out our Recipes for more ideas.

It's not always easy but if you don't keep junk food in the house, it's much easier to stick to eating healthily. Plus you'll avoid the tantrums that can arise when the kids know there are lollies nearby!
