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 your best to include different legumes such as green peas, beans, lentils and chickpeas each day. If you can't include them one day, try again the next day.

  • It's not always easy but try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach. Try eating a healthy snack before leaving home.

  • Check out BUPA's FoodSwitch app to see how much sugar is in your favourite drinks, snacks and cereals. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

  • Kids often enjoy buffet style meals. It gives them independence and helps them to choose foods that match their food preferences and appetite. Place all the toppings on the table and allow family members to prepare their own Chicken and Bean Fajitas

  • In the supermarket, it's OK to say no to your kids when they ask for junk food. Say yes and their expectations for junk food could set in.
