As it turns out, you CAN do Easter without sugar.
I love to make my kids baskets of gifts on Valentine’s Day and Easter. There are plastic eggs in these baskets, which I filled with treats, but no candy with refined sugar or corn syrup. I get them in bulk at the health food store: carob raisins and nuts etc.
I fill baskets with lip gloss, socks and underwear, movies, toys, mugs and other festive little gifts. My kids don’t expect sugar in their baskets.
I once did what everyone else did, before I knew better–but kids can and do survive the shift to a healthier life.
I love you, Cade, Emma, Libby and Tenn! Enough to get creative with the holidays.
Happy Easter to you. He is Risen!
