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 to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.

  • It's not always easy but try to eat a whole piece of fruit (like an orange) instead of drinking fruit juice. More nutrients, less sugar.

  • A serve of fruit equals:

    • 1 medium-sized piece of fruit, such as an apple, banana, orange or pear 
    • 2 small pieces of fruit, such as apricots, kiwi fruits or plums, or 
    • 1 cup of tinned fruit (with no added sugar).

  • Do you have ideas you want to share with other families? Submit your own tip here.

  • We know how hard it can be, but children are less likely to eat when there is pressure, force or bribery.
