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 easy to confuse hunger for thirst. Next time you think you're hungry have a glass of tap water first. Then if you're still hungry, have something to eat.

  • Watch out for unhealthy foods that are marketed as healthy options. For example, organic potato chips are still potato chips - "organic" just refers to the way the ingredients are grown. 

  • You can introduce your baby to vegetables from around 6 months of age. When cooking your family meal, make extra vegies, then puree and freeze them in ice-cube trays.

  • 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.
