Do you want to make a healthy buffet or take food to a Slimming World taster session? Are you stuck on taster ideas for your group’s party sessions? Do you attend one of the many Slimming World groups across the country?
At taster sessions, members bring along a low syn or syn free food for everyone to share as a big buffet. There are so many Slimming World friendly recipes you could make.
Remember though if for some reason you can’t take anything that is no excuse to avoid the scales! Yes I know I have done that before so you are not alone!
Here are some great taster ideas for you. If you follow Slimming World at home without a group then these are also great buffet ideas.
What can you take to a Slimming World Taster session?
So, what can you take? It doesn’t have to be something you have made remember you can take something you have bought too. The idea is that it is a syn free meal or a syn free snack.
Don’t let it being taster week put you off there are some really easy things you can make. Here are my suggestions for you.

Frozen grapes – Grapes are great frozen and not everyone has tried them. If you can get them out of the freezer just before group then this is a great choice. Syn free.
Carrot Cake – Low syn and yummy!
Fruit and vegetables – If you are struggling for time picking up a tub of grapes or bag of carrot sticks can be so quick and stop you from feeling like you are turning up empty-handed.
Low syn sweets like these Diablo ones from B&M stores.
Are there any rules for Slimming World taster week?
Usually, the group consultant requests all food or drinks you take are syn free or low syn.
Additionally, it is always a good idea to list ingredients or even provide the recipe. This can greatly help people with allergies and intolerances.
If you enjoy the food you make to take then the chances are someone in your group will so do take the recipe with you for people to photo on their mobile phone!

There are so many other options but these are just a few of my favourites you might not have thought of.
