DS and BIL came to stay over Christmas and have been doing Slimming World for a few months. On reflection, I was thoughtless, we had Christmas treats and takeaways galore. They were making goodish choices but I feel I could have been more supportive. I want to get them a hamper or something so they can use their sins. They like a treat of crisps or a bar of something at night. I'm going to see them in a couple of weeks, any recommendations of what I can take?

Also any good family friendly meals that are low sin but feel like a celebration for when they next stay?

It’s lovely that you want to be helpful but I wonder if it’s better not to have too many treat foods - even WW ones - around the house at one time. So - better to buy one packet and not another until it’s finished? It might just be me!

You sound very kind.

When I say hamper, I mean a multi pack of crisps and some mini bars of something that I know they have anyway. I don't want to fill their pantry with temptation. A gesture would go a long way, especially for my lovely BIL.

While Pinch of Nom has had to remove mention of SW their recipes are SW friendly. There's loads online including meals that feel you're having a real treat but are low syn.

You can serve any lean meat, jacket potatoes, air fry or oven baked chips, lots of veg. Iceland do SW sauces too.

Curly wurlys are 6 syns
Metcalfes popcorn between 4-6 syns a bag
Options hot chocolate sachets are quite low
10 cal jellies are 0.5 syns
