As you might expect, my family doesn’t tend to go overboard with the treats on holidays where the indulgence of everything sweet typically runs rampant in households with kids. With yet another candy filled holiday coming up soon, I found myself pondering how to best fill the kids’ Easter baskets with healthy treats without guaranteeing myself a house full of sniffles. Reiterating the lesson of moderation is also high on the list. I don’t think it is ever a good idea to let kids eat candy and sweets in an unrestrained manner. Letting kids eat candy and sweets at will and without limit can definitely lead to an unbalanced approach to eating as they grow older.
