Every year, millions of kids wake up on Easter Sunday and search for a basket filled with Peeps and Cadbury Eggs. It’s easy to say “just this once”,  but even just one time can cause more harm than you realize. Even just having one piece of candy can cause our taste buds to crave more of it in the days and weeks after, causing bad lifelong habits.

Instead of filling their baskets with sticky, sugary candy, why not try some of these alternate ideas that will still keep the Easter spirit alive!

  • Decorative Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Pastel Colored Chalk
  • Dried Fruit
  • Granola Bars
  • Sugar Free Gum
  • Nail Polish or Accessories
  • Video Games, Books of Puzzles
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Trail Mix
  • Electric Tooth Brush

IF you can’t avoid giving your kids candy, just be sure to brush and floss shortly after.

Happy Easter Weekend!
