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. 

  • Try to buy juice with no added sugar and limit by half to one cup per day for young children.

  • It's easy to confuse hunger for thirst. Next time you think you're hungry have a glass of tap water first. Then if you're still hungry, have something to eat.

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for fun colour instead, toss in some fresh berries. For more recipe ideas click here.

  • Off to a sporting event? Pack some healthy snacks so you'll be less tempted by the high fat, high sugar foods on offer at the game. This tip can apply to any event or activity outside of the house.
