Most birthday parties include lots of junk food, like chips, dips, nuggets, ice cream, cakes, soft drinks, hamburgers etc.. Food that have no nutritional values or with empty calories... which are really bad for everybody especially the health conscious and the weight watchers.

Just because it's a party, you don't need to throw your healthy lifestyle out of the window and allow your family to feast on junk food. You can completely change the menu and make healthy cooking birthday parties the standard for your life and the life of your children, friends, family, and loved ones.

Healthy birthday party treats are easy to create. Just use a little creativity and you would be able to present an impressive range of good quality food for yourself and your loved ones.

Instead of buying a fattening onion dip for chips, why not purchase some low fat or nonfat yogurt and use that as a dip for a tray full of fresh strawberries, apples, bananas, and other such wonderful fruit treats! It is entirely healthy and it tastes great!

Instead of cooking hamburgers and hotdogs or ordering a pizza as many people do, for your healthy cooking birthday parties you can make chicken or tuna sandwiches, cold pasta salad, a nice big bowl of fresh garden salad or even serve a big plate of cheese platter... the list can go on.

Instead of chips, get plain Nacho and create your own dips using fresh vegetables and fruits like tomatoes, onions, apple cider vinegar, avocado and non fat yogurt. Make your own fresh fruit juices to substitute softdrinks, mix in a little soda into the juice to give the extra kick.

And if you want to totally transform your healthy cooking birthday parties, why not opt for a low fat to no fat dessert? You can make or order a nonfat yogurt cake. You can make cupcakes or a nice large cake and substitute yogurt for some of the more fattening ingredients. There are many alternatives that are just as delicious and even nutritious!
