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.


  • While fruits contain vitamins and minerals our body needs, they also have high levels of natural sugars so just remember to keep everything in balance. Try replacing a couple of serves of fruit for vegies.

  • Try using our Habit tracker to keep a track of how often your family has fruit each day.

  • Try to shop once for the whole week to save time and money.

  • 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.

  • Use child-sized plates and bowls for your kids. It makes it easier to tell if they're getting the right portion size. Visit the Australian Dietary Guidelines to find the recommended number of serves by gender and age group.
