Healthy Party tips

  • Keep the sugary drinks and snacks to a minimum
  • If you’re serving cake, cupcakes, and cookies then serve water to drink
  • Use smaller portions of sweet treats like mini cupcakes
  • Think about healthy snack options:  mini sandwiches, fruit kebabs or a vegetable tray are great options
  • If you’re serving candy, avoid “gummy” options.  Gummy snacks stick to teeth and can cause cavities more quickly
  • Use fruits, vegetables and herbs or spices to infuse tap water for a tasty alternative
  • Stay active-plan party games and activities to get people moving
  • Add the My Drink Pyramid
