What should you do when losing weight is the goal but dessert is the most important meal of the day? On the WeightWatchers program, you can watch the scale go down while still enjoying bikkies, cupcakes, ice-cream or whatever your sweet tooth desires. After all, healthy eating is all about striking a balance, whether that means going for the ZeroPoint® salad so that you have room in your budget for a brownie or using roll over Points® to enjoy cake at a birthday party. However you choose to fit dessert into your eating plan is up to you. That’s the beauty of a flexible program.

So, while there’s nothing wrong with grabbing a sweet treat from the supermarket or bakery, there’s something seriously satisfying about mixing up your own dessert from scratch. They are often lower in Points too! Check out our healthy baking tips and healthy cake and baking recipes.
