Eating healthy can be a real struggle for the modern consumer. The food market is saturated with items that are high in processed grains, saturated fats, salt and sugar – many of these foods have limited nutritional value. Thankfully, there are plenty of savoury and nutritious options available for those who want to provide something better for their families.

So, if you’re currently residing in the suburbs of Perth, be sure to check out these restaurants that are not only great for the family but perfect if you want your family to eat as healthy as possible!
