Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips
Canapés served at parties can often be full of bad fats and salt (sodium). When planning the canapés for your next party stick to serving plenty of fresh nutritious foods, utilising the fruit and vegetables in season as they will be full of flavour. For example you could try serving vegie sticks with low fat hommus, wholegrain crackers with salsa, mini tomato bruschetta or mini fruit kebabs.
