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. 

  • 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.

  • If you're short on time, try a simple meal like tuna and packaged salad or pesto pasta made with pesto in a jar. For more ideas check out our simple and low cost Recipes.

  • Get the kids involved with preparing vegies! Younger children can use their hands to shred lettuce and wash vegies, while older kids can be taught how to safely use a peeler. For more ideas visit the Fresh Tastes: healthy food at school section of this website.

  • Plan your healthy meals for the week, then make a shopping list to ensure you get everything you need in one trip.
