Vegetables with Ranch Dip
Fruit and cheese with caramel sauce (can substitute a yogurt dip or reduced fat peanut butter)
Chips are another great tradition when it comes to football snacking. It does not really matter whether you choose reduced fat (baked) or regular chips … what matters is the portion. If you are someone who cannot limit themselves, then I highly recommend going baked although you still need to limit to one serving.
