If it’s just nibbles, how about some tasty, healthier snacks, such as:
- low-fat dips (less than 3g fat per 100g) with vegetable sticks, bread sticks or mini pitta breads for dipping
- lower fat/salt crisps – compare labels so you can choose healthier varieties
- some easy-to-eat fruits, such as apples and grapes
- homemade plain popcorn – made in the pan from popping kernels"
If that's not bad enough, the advice goes on to tell you how to barbecue safely before going on to give some advice on which takeaway meals are better for you. In a cringing nod to the diversity industry there's even a piece of advice about how you can eat food with a multicultural twist. Naturally there are the usual warnings about drinking too much alcohol and not eating salty snacks and, finally, there's a hectoring jab to tell you how you should also take exercise during the competition.
If the government needs to find somewhere for its money saving axe to fall, I don't think it could do better than the department of tosspots who drew up this heap of bollocks.
