On an entertainments programme - 'light refreshments available'. This will be nibbles (crisps, nuts, maybe sausage rolls etc). Is 'amuse-gueules' right when these do not form part of a sit-down meal, but are just available to pick up and eat?
Personally, I feel that the chosen term would be fine for 'nibbles', but is not really applicable for the wider term 'refreshments', which in particular tends to include something to drink as well. One often sees things like "light refreshments will be available, including nibbles"
I would invite you to consider perhaps editing the glossary entry?
