“Healthy” and “Christmas” might seem like two bizarre words to put together. I am not against the Christmas goodies and celebrating the Christmas spirit with various delicacies, but having overly sugar-laden foods has never been proven to be good for anyone.

The Christmas spirit has taught me not only to be grateful for the people around me but also for my own body and self. It makes me realize that taking care of people around me is as important as taking care of my own health.

And so I curated these 8 healthy Christmas snacks that I swear by every holiday season. These have proven to be a great crowd-pleaser in the past for adults and kids both:

1. Nutty Carrot Flatbread

Vegetable-flavored flatbreads are really my favorite because they help me serve up healthy vegetables in a more attractive and appealing way. And these hearty, seed-packed, and nut-packed, gluten-free slices of flatbread are the perfect Christmas snack.

Filled with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and carrots, these Christmas savory snacks will just take 15 minutes of preparation and you’ll be all set with your Christmas party snacks!
