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.


  • Children can enjoy buffet style meals. It gives them independence and helps them to choose foods that match their food preferences and appetite. Place all the toppings on the table and allow family members to prepare their own Fajitas.

  • 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.

  • To help cut back on sugary drinks start small. Don't have them in your house by avoiding the soft drink aisle at the supermarket. Or even try to keep a jug of water in the fridge instead. If water isn't your thing, why not try swapping sugary drinks with milk instead? Remember, every small step counts.

  • Kids have small stomachs and high energy needs so snacks are an important part of healthy eating. It can be hard but try your best to offer a variety of choices from the five food groups.

  • Use leftover vegies from the night before to add to a super-quick vegie frittata in the morning.
