Ho-ho-holy moly, party season is officially in full sparkly swing. There’s snow reason for any Slimming World member to ever turn down a party invite. Follow this Slimming World party food plan and you can rock around the Christmas tree with family and friends – and still feel your festive best when Big Ben starts to bong.

Your Slimming World party food plan

December can be a party pooper-free zone when you have a plan up your sleeve (scroll for our favourite recipes)…

Fill up first

A filling pre-party meal will stop you from arriving hungry – so you can pick the bits of the buffet that you’ll really enjoy.

Be a dinner detective

Restaurants definitely don’t have to be a no-go zone for Slimming World members. Seeing the menu in advance will help you to plan, and you’ll also have a handy online Food Search tool at your fingertips.

Mix up the menu

Making simple swaps can transform a dine-out dinner or party plate into a slimming success. Little things like skipping extra butter and getting sauce on the side (so you stay in control!) can make a big difference.

serves 8
ready in 25 mins

What you need:

3 kiwi fruit, sliced
600g strawberries, stalks removed
300g each of red and white seedless grapes
1 orange-fleshed melon, peeled, deseeded and cut into bite-sized chunks
1 carrot
1 apple

What you do:

1. To make the Christmas tree first you have to cut a slice from the bottom of an apple so that it sits flat. Then put it on a flat surface and fix a carrot on its top. For this you can use wooden skewers or cocktail sticks to secure it in place. After that put cocktail sticks in the apple and carrot, just like branches of a tree.

2. To assemble, attach the chopped fruit to the cocktail sticks, covering the apple and carrot completely. Finish with a star-shaped melon piece on top.
