When hosting for the holidays, it can be a big challenge to have the right food that is nutritious, filing and most importantly delicious.

Jason Carr talked to registered dietitian Colleen Christensen with Parker’s Plate who shared easy solutions to this problem.

She suggests incorporating what she calls “better for you ingredients,” like fruit, into your menu.

Christensen says cider made with mandarins or appetizers like pomegranate marscapone cheese crostinis are great because they are tasty and are full of vitamins and minerals.

Another easy trick? Making a basket of essentials for out of town guests.
