Chip & Dip

This healthy chip and dip recipe is the perfect snack for picnics or just as a special treat on weekends.


Nachos are a great alternative to regular salted crisp as they’re baked and not fried, and the plain chips don’t have added salt or flavourings. Interesting dips are a great way to get children to eat raw veggies.

Serves 4

  • 1 packet plain nachos chips
  • 1 tub low-fat hummus
  • 1 tub low-fat cream cheese
  • 3–4 sundried tomatoes in oil, drained
  • Fresh crudités such as green beans, carrot sticks, cucumber sticks and celery sticks
  • ½ avocado


  1. Make the cream cheese dip by whizzing the sundried tomatoes with the cream cheese in a food processor until combined. Scoop into a bowl.
  2. Dice the avocado, toss in 1tsp juice to prevent it going brown, and stir into the hummus.
  3. Arrange the chips and dips on a platter and enjoy!


  1. Include plain yoghurt as a dip, and serve fruit slices as a healthy dessert alternative, or for those craving something sweet, dip pieces of fruit in chocolate as a sugar-controlled dessert.
  2. Serve veggie crisps (either store-bought or homemade) as an alternative to traditional potato crisps.
