Healthy Easter Basket Ideas

Sara K. Larsen - Monday, April 14, 2014

Traditional Easter baskets are filled with chocolate and pastel-colored candy.  But this holiday doesn't have to be focused on high-sugar candy. There are plenty of healthier alternatives!
 
Here are some fun and healthy Easter basket ideas:
Hard boiled eggs
Athletic headbands
Carrots
Jump rope
Apples
Sidewalk chalk
A few dark chocolates
Board games
Raw nuts and seeds
A garden starter kit
Yogurt covered raisins
Stickers
Fresh berries
Coloring books

With that said, chocolate and high-sugar candy do have a place in our diet. We don't need to label certain foods as "good" or "bad". It's all about moderation and balance in your eating and in your life.

What was your favorite Easter basket treat or toy?
