Liv Margan, the mother of two, said the key to a good meal was to choose a dish that had a high percentage of healthy ingredients.
Ms Margan said she preferred a meal that had plenty of veggies and fruit.
She said her favourite is a plate of kale and avocado with lots of protein, so she likes to put that in front of the family.
“I like to have lots of vegetables and fruits because I know they’re good for me,” she said.
“If I’m eating salad, I’m going to have to choose from a variety of different foods to have enough for the day.” “
Ms Marigan said she was “bitter” about being on a high-carb diet, but said she felt she was doing the right thing by avoiding refined carbs. “

“When you’re eating low-carb, you’re cutting out all the sugars and sugars, and all the starches,” she told 7.30.
“This is all about the amount of fat and the carbs in the diet.””
I think it’s important to eat more healthy food, not less healthy food.””

“When you choose to eat less healthy, you can still have a healthy lifestyle and you can make sure you’re not going to be overeating, you know?”
Ms Margans children’s school in Sydney is one of the few that allows children to eat low-fat and high-protein meals.
The school principal said she knew from the first day they arrived that eating healthy food was key.
“We have all had a conversation where our kids have said they’re like ‘I’m going through a hard time and I want to eat well, but I want my kids to have something good to eat, like chips, chips and a sandwich’,” Ms Maran said.
“We’ve had discussions where kids are like ‘Dad, I really like your school lunch, but you can’t have chips because I’m a fatter person’.” “I can’t say we’re happy with it, but we’re certainly happy with the outcome.”
The School of Nutrition and Dietetics said that in general, parents and students should try to keep portions small.
The school’s nutritionist said there was no reason for low-calorie foods to be more prominent on the plate.
Ms Margan and her husband are keen to ensure their children have a varied diet and eat well.
She said she’d like to see a range of vegetables in her family’s food, but was happy with a few choices.
“[I want] vegetables that are a little bit different,” she explained.
