  • Use leftover vegies from the night before to add to a super-quick vegie frittata in the morning. 

  • Poach, boil or scramble one or two eggs and serve with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and multigrain toast. Healthy, tasty and easy! For more ideas, check out our Recipes.

  • 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.

  • A serve of vegies equals:

    • 1/2 cup of most types of cooked vegies, or
    • 1 cup of raw salad.

  • ‘Plastic’ cheese is a good source of calcium and protein. Plastic-wrapped cheese slices are a staple in school lunch boxes across the country. However, some people may believe that just because this cheese is pre-sliced and plastic-wrapped, it has also been modified in a way that has stripped it of all its goodness. The fact is these slices contain just as much protein and calcium as hard block cheese.
