Healthier ideas for your Easter Baskets
Easter is a week away. If you're like me you're just now thinking about what to do for decorating boiled eggs and getting your kiddos' easter baskets ready to go. When I went to the store yesterday to get the basket fix in's I wasn't surprised to only see chocolate, candy, more candy, and more chocolate stocked on the Holiday isle. I nabbed a chocolate bunny (a hollow one... I feel like such a loser. Must Go Back to get a filled one) then headed off to get some healthier snacks for filling Lorelei's shiny plastic eggs.
Here's what I got:
Newman's Own Chocolate Alphabet Cookies
I liked the idea of using these alphabet cookies from Newman's Own for my preschooler because we could practice out letters and crunch on some yummy cookies at the same time. (That and they are made with organic ingredients and proceeds go to charitable organizations.)
Annie's Organic Cheddar Bunnies
Bunnies. An Egg full of bunnies is a perfect choice for Easter. 'Nuf said.
