"Healthy desserts in moderation"
By: Franz Josephine I. Ferrer, RNDSweet Delights

No single food item is bad for our health; every kind of food has its own vitamin, nutrient, and mineral content. In fact, even desserts can be healthy! Here are a few examples:

●  Slice some fresh fruit. Mix low fat yogurt with low fat whipped topping. Spoon onto the fresh fruit. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top and enjoy!

●  Cut an apple or peach in half. Spray it lightly with canola oil spray. Sprinkle it with brown sugar and grill until soft and fragrant. Top with some sugar-free syrup or low fat whipped topping.

●  Have a cup of sugar-free gelatin and top it with a scoop of low fat whipped topping and a cherry.

●  Mix fat-free vanilla yogurt with a small amount of peanut butter and brown sugar. Mix well and use as a dip for fresh apple slices.

Remember, food only becomes bad for the health if it is taken in amounts larger than what is recommended. Therefore, eat in moderation! Don’t restrict yourself too much, because it may lead to a higher inclination to binge. Cravings and binges start when people feel frustrated and deprived therefore a little bit of healthy sweets and desserts must be allowed in amounts computed for and planned with the help of your registered nutritionist-dietitian.

As Amy Jamieson-Petonic RD, the spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association, puts it—“It’s a matter of balance.” Desserts and sweets can fit into your meal plan when you work with a diabetes educator or registered nutritionist-dietitian. So, visit your nutritionist and plan a fun, healthy, and non-restrictive diet that also satisfies a sweet tooth.
