Are ‘picky bits’ an essential part of your Christmas? Maybe you love to lay on some nibbles for Christmas Eve movie night? Or for a laid-back Boxing Day tea? This gorgeous grazing board is a great way to enjoy your favourite Food Optimising-friendly snacks. It also makes a stunning centrepiece, so that’s the New Year’s Eve do sorted, too! 

We’ve piled our platter high with Free Foods, including fruit, lean cooked meats, tomatoes and pickles (with no worries about weighing or counting) – plus measured Healthy Extra cheeses, nuts and crispbreads. Of course, you can adapt your charcuterie to suit you and your guests – and even create vegetarian and vegan versions. Slimming World members can easily check Syn values using the Food Search or barcode scanner tools on the app and website.
