Savoury snacks often get labelled in the same category as crisps and pastries which are traditionally high in fat, saturated fat and salt.  However, healthy savouries can play a very important role in the diet by contributing variety in texture, taste and nutrient value.  

Savoury food also plays an important role in afternoon teas.  From sophisticated smoked salmon parcels to simply stuffed tomatoes, cream cheese and chives, you can add colour and taste to your afternoon tea to offset sweeter food items, as well as increase the nutrient value by incorporating a greater variety of food groups.  

Here are some recipes for you to choose from, which are low in fat, saturated and salt but high in nutrients.
