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.

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

  • Try to eat some meals with the whole family. Sharing meals is a great way to keep across what's going on in everyone's lives.

  • While fruit and vegetable juices have some nutritional benefits they can be high in kilojoules if your family drinks them in large quantities. Choose juice with no added sugar (including sparkling varieties) and limit to half to one cup per day.

  • Keep food safe. Always wash hands before cooking. It's best to keep food hot, at or above 60' celsius, or cold, at or below 5' celsius.
