Can Easter be Sugar-Free?

Sugar Free Easter Baskets for my Kids

hug me don't eat meAs 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!

    P.S. (Whole Foods has a chocolate bar made with stevia!) Yummy! That went in our girl’s baskets.
