  • Less-processed treats like these healthier homemade desserts:
    • Vegan chocolate-dipped peanut butter crisp balls
    • Vegan peanut butter patties
    • Paleo dark chocolate nut clusters
    • Vegan carrot cake cupcakes
  • Decorated hard-boiled eggs to use later in one of these healthy hard-boiled-egg recipes
  • Spring flowers like tulips, dahlias, or lilies
  • If you’re going to put a little chocolate in your basket, choose antioxidant-rich dark chocolate that’s organic or fair trade
  • Health and fitness magazines, small gadgets, or DVDs
  • Carrots — they’re the Easter Bunny’s favorite snack, after all
  • Pastel-colored fitness gear like headbands, socks, or workout tanks
  • Especially for kids: books, puzzles, small toys, stuffed bunnies, stickers, coloring books and watercolor paints, magnets, disposable cameras, packets of seeds and gardening tools, plastic eggs filled with glow sticks (to be used later for a glow-in-the-dark egg hunt), Play-Doh or Silly Putty (it even comes in its own egg), or pastel-colored socks

Be creative and have fun with it. We promise the kids won’t event miss the candy!
