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.


  • If your kids are getting hungry while you're on the move, one way to avoid fast-food temptation is by always having some fruit in your bag.

  • Add grated carrot or pumpkin to a wholegrain muffin recipe. Or for fun colour instead, toss in some fresh berries. For more recipe ideas click here.

  • If you're looking for a sweet snack, try raisin toast, a plain scone, English muffins, dried fruit and nuts, fruit smoothies or plain yoghurt with fruit. Check out the Tuckatalk Factsheets for more ideas.  

  • Try to choose fresh foods over processed foods. See the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating for more information.  

  • Eat at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV or other electronic devices. This makes it easier to pay attention to how much we're eating.
