Try serving alternative, healthier finger foods at your Super Bowl party this year.

With the Super Bowl quickly approaching many people are getting ready for their annual game-day festivities. Friends gather to have a good time, enjoy some football, and of course, eat. Indiana University sports branding and fitness expert Antonio Williams says the food served at these gatherings is very important. He says while greasy, fatty foods can be tempting, there are healthier, less caloric ways of enjoying the big game.

“Provide some type of serving label or something where people can dip out of, serving chips and not continually shake them onto their plate from the bag; or even provide the snack size version of a chip, the personal bags of the chips.” Williams said.

Williams also recommends avoiding processed foods which he says only lead to overeating. The best way to avoid consuming a lot of high calorie foods Williams says, is to eat before you go to any sports party.
