Healthy Meetings

Healthy MeetingsChoose simple snacks that are nutritious, and delicious for meetings and conferences. It is important that nutrient-dense foods rather than calorie-dense foods, are provided. Empty calorie foods won’t fuel your body for a long work day. Be sure to have snacks that have lots of nutrients especially carbohydrate and protein.

  • Fresh fruit salad with a low-fat yogurt dip

  • Baked tortilla chips with salsa or bean dip
  • Yogurt parfait made with low-fat yogurt, fresh or frozen fruit, and low-fat granola
  • Pitas with a hummus dip
  • Whole-grain tortilla wrap with low-fat cream cheese and vegetable slices, rolled up and cut into slices like pin wheels
  • Whole-grain crackers with a low-fat cheese spread or peanut butter
  • Whole fresh fruit
