Relishing & Healthy Party Snacks


Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers


Chicken fingers are quite popular and one of the most relished healthy party snacks. Why don’t you give it a healthy twist by baking them on a pan sprinkled with zero fat cooking spray? Serve hot with a fat free yogurt dip. Enhance the taste of your chicken fingers with seasonings of your choice.


Stuffed Veggies


There are certain raw vegetables which will taste yummy when stuffed and served. Scoop out tomatoes and fill them with a lean meat-shredded low fat cheese stuffing or hollow out bell peppers and stuff with your favorite filling. You may even try making stuffed versions of zucchini, summer squash and celery.


Bruschetta


Serve warm, thinly sliced homemade bruschetta with a topping of diced tomatoes and pesto along with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese to entice the taste buds of your guests. Check out this healthy party snack.


Salsa


Even though you can buy salsa, try making a healthier version at home using onions, jalapenos, cilantro, tomatoes and lemon juice. Save along with abked tortilla chips. Your guests will be enthralled.


Hummus


A very humble dip prepared from chickpeas, this low calories dip when paired with baked pita chips forms one of the best healthy party snacks.


Snack Mix


Prepare your own healthy snack mix by combining corn cereal, whole grain cereals, sunflower seeds, and unsalted peanuts. Offer a treat to your sweet tooth by adding caramel corn to the healthy party snack.


Veggie Slices


No other party snack ideas will be better than freshly sliced veggies. Prepare a veggie tray containing carrots, cucumbers, bell pepper, celery, squash and broccoli. Add steamed sprouts to enhance the taste. You may season it with salt, pepper and a dash of lemon juice.


Vegetable Kebabs
