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.

  • If you don't enjoy eating a traditional breakfast, try making a fruit smoothie. For recipe ideas click here.

  • Try to limit or avoid sugary drinks. Energy and sport drinks, flavoured mineral waters, cordials, iced teas, sweetened waters, sports waters, sugar sweetened crushed ice drinks, fruit drinks and, of course, soft drinks can contain up to 10 teaspoons of sugar per can. Check to see how much sugar is in all of your drinks and consider tap water instead.

  • Why not join up with a friend, another family or a neighbour and start a vegie patch in the backyard? You could even swap the vegies you grow.

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