It's not uncommon for people to stuff Easter baskets with unhealthy items that can linger long after the holiday has passed. To help you avoid unhealthy Easter baskets here are a few things you can substitute that will still make the holiday fun, just not hazardous to your health.
1. Fruit snacks
Instead of tons of chocolate and treats, go for healthy fruit snacks instead.
If you need your choclate fix, try dipping fruits like strawberries into chocolate instead. You'll get the fix for your sweet tooth but you won't overindulge, which is always a good thing.
Instead of going with sweets, try adding in games for a more social Easter. Cards, puzzles, and the like all make excellent additions to Easter baskets.
Instead of candy, try putting in stickers or temporary tattoos for that personal touch to Easter baskets.
If you just have to have your candy fix this Easter, be mindful of your portions.
Instead of going for large bags of candy, try opting for indvidually-wrapped candy instead. This can decrease the tendency to grab large handfuls and shovel them into your mouth.
This Easter be more mindful of the treats you place in your loved one's basket. If you swap out the treats for interactive games and fun trinkets, you'll be better able to ward off the excessive delicious candies that have become associated with the Easter holiday.
