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.

  • Keep some tinned vegies, beans, lentils and chickpeas in the house - they're an excellent alternative to meat. Mix them into a salad, soup or casserole for extra protein, iron and fibre.

  • Tap water is best, so you and your family are doing well to avoid this in your diet. During warmer months you can try adding fresh fruit such as citrus or berries to your chilled water to quench your thirst.

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

  • It's not always easy but try to serve the same healthy meal to the whole family - it's a great way to be together and enjoy eating.
