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. 

  • It's not always easy but try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach. Try eating a healthy snack before leaving home.

  • Let the kids choose a new type of vegie to use in a stir fry - like mushrooms or Chinese greens. For more ideas check out our Recipes.

  • Cook extra portions of vegies at dinnertime and use the leftovers for lunches the next day.

  • Think of snacks as mini meals and make them healthy. Offer a variety of choices based on the five food groups across the day.
