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.


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

  • When shopping with the kids, distract them from pestering you for junk food by making a fun scavenger hunt game to help you find all the healthy food items on your list. Give them their own pull-along basket to help.

  • It's an easy one to forget but try to take your own water bottle when you leave the house so you're not tempted to buy sugary drinks. Leave a spare bottle in the boot of your car for emergencies.

  • At the end of a meal, instead of asking "Are you finished?" ask "Is your tummy full?". This helps your child pay attention to feelings of hunger and fullness.

  • Low or reduced fat dairy foods are suitable for children over 2 years of age.
