The Easter Aftermath

Easter is over. The holiday celebration has ended. I've swept up all the scraps of recycled paper Easter grass from our little guy's basket. He had a lot of fun spreading the grass around our whole house. This being the first Easter that our son has received candy. I wonder how much is too much?
 Yesterday, I let him have several pieces along with deserts, but now that the party is over we are left with TONS of candy. When you have a child that already has an aversion to healthy foods, what do you do to keep the healthy food to candy ratio at a good balance? I heard a family member say 3 peices of candy a day limit for their kids.
 When it comes to candy limits what works with your children? 


  1. I'm was a stick in the mud for years with Easter baskets. I bought small toys, books, crayons and maybe a t-shirt to put in the baskets. It wasn't until the children were older that I began to put candy in and even then I think it was health food items!

  2. put in a brownie, 3 small chocolate eggs, and a reese cup bunny..the rest were small toys/crayons/ect. They ate all the candy first thing..thank goodness that's all that was in there, huh.

  3. My kiddos both have a WalMart/Target bag full of candy from 1 public egg hunt,a family egg hunt, and the Easter Bunny. I put a 3 piece candy limit on them and so far that's working..... so far! LOL We may have Easter candy until Halloween at only 3 pieces a day but we'll see. =)

  4. Candy limits are hard for me! I think I end up eating more than they do! I have only one child that needs limits and what works for him is having one time a day where he gets candy. He knows that is the one and only time he will get any. So far it is working.
