Healthy Easter Recipes & Treat Ideas

Healthy Easter Recipes & Treat Ideas

Easter is next weekend – and it’s sure to be an Easter that we’ll remember. Because of Coronavirus, we’re unable to host big family dinners or be in close proximity with many of those we care about.

Is that going to stop us from having the best Easter weekend ever? NO WAY!

We’ve compiled a whole bunch of healthy Easter recipes, healthy (and healthy-ish) Easter treat ideas, non-candy Easter basket stuffers, and family activities you can do online. 

Without further ado: 

HEALTHY EASTER RECIPES: 

Guacamole Appetizer

Instead of serving guacamole with tortilla chips, try eating with carrot sticks, broccoli, celery, or home-baked pita chips.

NON-CANDY EASTER BASKET IDEAS: 

In addition to (or instead of) hiding individually wrapped easter chocolates… fill reusable plastic eggs with:

  • Puzzle pieces – Buy 1 puzzle and put a single piece per egg. As the children find the eggs, they can also build a new puzzle. AND VOILA – you have at least 15 minutes of distracted children 🙂 
  • Lego pieces – same as above… but with a Lego toy.
  • Goldfish Crackers or Cheddar Bunny Crackers
  • Coins (.5c, .10c, .25c, etc,)
  • Stickers or washable tattoos 
  • Hair clips 
  • Pencil toppers or erasers 
  • Balloons 
  • Grow toys (the ones you put in water) 
  • A single smartie/M&M/jelly bean (or any teeny piece of candy) 

ACTIVITIES YOU CAN DO ONLINE WITH FAMILY
