I have a 5 year old son and I always have made him a very candy-filled basket. This year I didn't want that as I'm trying to cut out all processed sugars and he totally overreacts to sugar and needs to detox from it, too. Well, this year the Easter Bunny is bringing gardening gloves for all of us (me, DH, son), a trowel for each of us, and a bunch of vegetable seed packets. I got one small chocolate bunny (Lindt) to share between the three of us and one small bag (candy bar size) of mini Cadbury eggs (solid choc.) So that isn't bad. Then I convinced my son that the Easter bunny was more likely to bring something useful that we wanted for the season than candy we couldn't eat.. and got him so psyched about it that he was begging the Easter Bunny to bring gardening gloves, a trowel for mommy, and seeds! WOOHOO!! GO MOMMY!!!
You are worth having a healthy body!
This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.
Nope, no one to make them for anymore.
The Lord bless you and keep you,
The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you,
The Lord lift His countenance upon you and give you peace. Num 6:24-26

Yes, all 3 of my grandkids get a basket (ages 15-4)
Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

I used to when the kids were younger, but now not so much. If I do, I will put healthy treats and small gifts in.

Yes - I buy on Easter Bunny to each of my daughters... the rest of it is souvenirs that I bought during some of my trips (mostly craft)...
BUT Jeff buys a lot of candy (I try to have him cutting back on it.... however I think it is like breaking traditions laws for him so I gave up...)

When facing resistance, think "softness" and let go.
I used to when my kids were little. Of course I was fat and unhealthy then and none of my kids ever had a weight problem. My grands don't live local so I send them a small amount of cash to spend on whatever they (and their parents) want.
Do you give out Easter baskets with candy in them?
