Here they come - the Christmas parties. You'll have tray after tray of fried this and sugared that passed right under your nose.
If you are hosting a party yourself, consider offering mostly light, easy-serve options. It doesn't mean no taste and no fun!
There are ways to make your favourite traditional party foods healthier - make your own dips for a start.
Kids will eat healthy food if it looks fun and colourful and not "HEALTHY". Mini carrot juices in little clear cups? Cute!
Here are some ideas - and if you don't want to take too much time, why not stock up on vegies and set up a "make-your-own" salad area with chopped vegies, meats and various dressings?
