Tips to help you eat well

This collection of handy tips will help you and your family enjoy better eating habits. But don’t forget to also check out our ‘Good Habits’ recipes, as well as challenges to keep your family motivated.


  • Try not to fall for the specials. That item on special might be good value, but ask yourself: "do we really need this?".

  • Try to create a safe and happy mealtime. Talk to your children about what they did during the day rather than focusing on how much or whether they're eating.

  • The best drink to have is tap water, so make sure everyone in the house has their own drink bottle filled and in the fridge ready to go for when thirst hits. Drinking tap water instead of buying sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will also save you money.

  • 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.

  • We know how hard it can be but try to swap cakes and biscuits for raisin toast, crumpets, low fat muffins, pancakes and pikelets.
