How to make Easter a meltdown free zone.
March 24, 2015
I was wandering through Easter Chocolate aisle at the grocery store last night and groaning at the thought of the chocolate high, and then crash, that inevitably comes with the Easter Bunny hop, hop, hopping into our home and yard each spring.
My kids are mildly dairy intolerant, and the combination of the sugar, chocolate and dairy free-for-all that comes with Easter, I am starting to dread.
My own Mom always did a combination of a new outfit for easter (being the eldest of 4, and my Mom a stay-at-home mom, new clothes “just because” were a big deal) and some treats. As a girl, I always loved getting the new Easter Clothes, but thinking back, and knowing my brothers, I’m sure the boys DID NOT! I have a son and a daughter, and so was thinking about how I can minimize the candy for Easter, but still maximize on the joy (new socks do not elicit joy, even if that’s what they need). I’m still working on that, and I’ll let you know what I come up with!
In the meantime, these Easter “Treats” came across my email today,, from Savvy Mom and I just had to share!
So cute, and so easy! Delicious yogurt, poured/smoothed into Easter shapes, “decorated” with berries and popped in the freezer! I would bet, if you only half froze them, you could take them out, add a popsicle stick to the bottom of each, and then have a Easter Shaped Frozen Yogurt Popsicle!
If nothing else, to combat the sugar and chocolate, I’m going to serve yogurt shapes, full of great probiotics, Easter morning!
How do you combat the sugar/sweets overload of the holidays in your house?
