Are you ready for the most gluttonous eating season of the year? Food is usually a big part of family celebrations and it’s hard not to partake. Fun holiday fruit and veggie trays is one way to keep the festivities a little healthier.
It can be difficult to eat fresh and healthy during the holidays. The colder weather and festive parties always seem to encourage more decadent dishes. If you start each meal or party with a glass of water and fresh fruit or veggies though, you are likely to eat less of the unhealthier options.
Fresh produce doesn’t have to be boring though, check out the collection of holiday fruit trays and holiday veggie trays I’ve found online.

Be sure to play your holiday fruit or veggie tray around produce in season or your guests’ favorite types of fruit and veggies. The goal is to encourage everyone to have something healthy and fresh before indulging in other dishes!
