  • Would you eat 10 teaspoons of sugar in one go? That's how much sugar is in a regular can of soft drink with about 6 teaspoons in a fruit juice box. Replace one sugary drink per day with a glass of tap water.

  • Try different fruit for their different textures - apples for their crunch, bananas for their smoothness, and oranges for their juiciness.

  • Poach, boil or scramble one or two eggs and serve with grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and multigrain toast. Healthy, tasty and easy! For more ideas, check out our Recipes.
