Tips to get your family into life

With a few pointers from the tips below, you and your family could get more out of every day. Or, try some of our challenges to really get things rolling!


  • 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.

  • Get cooking. Make your favourite dinner together or maybe just a tasty after-school snack.

  • Often our lives get so busy it's hard to find time to connect with other like-minded people. If you're not already, try to set up a monthly play group with a few friends who might be going through similar challenges as you are. The kids can play and you can catch up on all the news.

  • Try to reduce your screen time by turning off the TV, computer or game device when they're not in use.

  • Try using incentives to get your kids to want to eat at the table. Your younger ones could blow out a candle at the end of the meal and older kids could light the candle (under parental supervision).
