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.


  • Watch out for unhealthy foods that are marketed as healthy options. For example, organic potato chips are still potato chips - "organic" just refers to the way the ingredients are grown. 

  • We are lucky in the ACT that we have such clean drinking water. When you head out, make sure you take a full water bottle from home. It will keep you hydrated as well as saving you money.

  • 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.

  • Add vegies like carrot or zucchini to spaghetti bolognaise, lasagne, casseroles, muffins and much more. It's an easy way to get more vegies in your day. For more ideas check out our Recipes.

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