Healthier Easter baskets
Did you know? A 1.75 oz of solid milk chocolate bunny can pack 298 calories and 18 g of fat.
Don't like those numbers? Here are some healthier options to the traditional candy-filled Easter baskets:
Choosing chocolate? Go for quality instead of quantity. Select dark chocolate rich in antioxidants, which help protect the body from damage.
Instead of jelly beans, why not fill small containers with raisins, sunflower seeds or unsalted nuts? Make your own protein-packed trail mix
Chocolate-dipped (dark chocolate of course!) fruit like strawberries provide sweetness and an excellent source of vitamin C and fibre.
Give kids games, stuffed toys or colouring books with a new box of crayons - or other age-appropriate activities.
Pack baskets with items that will get kids outside: soap bubbles, balls, packages of seeds and mini gardening tools.
What about the Easter Bunny's favourite snack? Carrots! Add some nut butter and vegetable dip.
