Desserts are not only delicious and provide enjoyment, but they can also be nutritionally beneficial.

We can’t survive on just fruit and vegetables alone, and desserts can provide us with a combination of nutrients often not sourced from meals and snacks.

The best types of dessert are those that combine food groups, such as dairy and fruit e.g. yoghurt and berries, or protein and carbohydrate such as cheese and crackers.

Here are some great dessert ideas which you can include in your afternoon teas;
