It’s almost Easter, so your kids deserve 400 grams of sugar on your watch! Right?
Hellllllll no. If your kids are anything like ours, the mere crinkle of a foil wrapper coming undone in enough to send them into fits of hysteria. One of ours even claims her child growls at her after processed sugar. Yeah… we’re good on that.
Instead, try these healthy Easter treats for kids this weekend. All the springy Easter fun, and none of the seven-syllable additives. What will you make with your littles before Easter?
These paleo coconut cream eggs from editor-in-chief Cheryl’s food blog 40 Aprons are insanely good and weirdly easy to make. They require only a few ingredients, and they’re officially kid approved. Pure chocolatey, coconutty goodness – you gotta try them.
Another fantastic healthy Easter treat from 40 Aprons, Cheryl tells us her son tracked the movement of the plastic container holding these paleo Peeps leftovers over a week. Upon waking each morning, he’d make a beeline to the current resting place of the raspberry and toasted-coconut lemon marshmallows (made with honey – honey, y’all!) and tap his fists together, requesting “Mah… mah… mah…”
But, of course, since they’re made only with honey and other real ingredients, Cheryl found these to be an acceptable breakfast side dish for little Leo. Plus, bunny shaped? Come on, mama; these are healthy Easter treats for kids are must-haves.
These Easter fruit kabobs are just so. stinkin’. cute., and we kind of want to pinch their little honeydew cheeks. Seriously healthy and easy. Um, mom win.
Is it just us, or can kids devour like 14 Babybel cheeses in one sitting? Add a bit of rabbit food to these cheesy rounds and poof, the cutest little bunnies or bunny bottoms (Blushing over here.). You just got your kid to eat vegetables… you’re basically done for the day.
I’m not 100% sure I could make this look anything like the photo, but that’s not the point. Double up on the bunnies, skip the bears, and you’re doing Easter to a T, my friend. Cuteness abounds.
Veggie bars that look like carrots and are made from crescent roll dough? Looks super fancy, but only we know the truth: it look you like fifteen minutes. Also, did you just get your kid to eat raw broccoli? 1000 points!
My kid is so obsessed with Easter eggs, he’d eat anything inside them. Might as well stick healthy granola in there, rather than yet another candy bracelet (’cause, uh, those are gross anyway), right? Also, almond butter + honey = the true love of my life anyway. Sorry, kids (and husband)!
If you were thinking what I’m thinking, the answer is no, these popsicles are not made of eggs. Instead, it’s all yogurt and fruit and happy popsicles ingredients over here. (Are we just weird for associating egg and breakfast that way?) And what kid (or, let’s be honest, what mom) would say no to a popsicle for breakfast? These are easy, too, so… booya.
YEAH I SAID BOOYAH.
