4 tips for a happy and healthy Easter!

The Easter Bunny is the bearer of all things sweet in the world and while we know it's ok to indulge a little in chocolate treats over the Easter season, it’s a good idea to show a little restraint and not go too crazy.

Did you know that just one medium sized (150g) bunny contains half of the recommended daily amount of sugar? With that in mind, we would like to share some Easter tips and tricks to cut back on the sugar while still having a little indulgence to celebrate the holiday and have lots of family fun.

1. Start the day right

Chocolate for breakfast might be every child’s dream, but instead you could try and hold off and choose a healthy filling breakfast so they are less likely to overindulge later in the day. Why not try our delicious, fun and healthy purple pancakes? They include eggs of the healthy variety! Extra points if you can make them bunny shaped!

2. Egg hunt minus all of the chocolate

Instead of chocolate eggs, try some colourful & fillable plastic eggs, including a small toy or even a gold coin for older children. The possibilities are endless.

3. Get active

A long weekend with the family is perfect to enjoy some fun activities together like bike riding, playing at the park, egg and spoon race, backyard cricket, or going for a bushwalk to explore somewhere you haven’t been before, it's a great way to burn off all that extra energy.

4. Get creative

One of the best things about Easter is all of the cute craft around. The shops are filled with fun and inexpensive Easter themed craft kits of all sorts. Egg painting, making puppets and hats, colouring in books, bunny shaped molds for cooking or playdough fun; there’s something fun for all ages and perfect if the weather turns bad and you’re stuck indoors.
