Sugar, Preservatives, Artificial Dye-Oh My! Traditional Easter eats are loaded with ingredients that can make even the easiest of the easy-going kids bounce off the walls. The chemicals that are used to create these holiday frankenfoods are now being linked to conditions like ADHD, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Cancer and Autism. To keep your family healthy, create an Easter Basket that is free from refined sugar and modified ingredients. I’ve simplified the task into 5 easy steps that will make basket creation simple and fun.
Step 1: Find the perfect basket and grass-like filler. I personally love the adorable options available at Pottery Barn Kids, Etsy and William Sonoma. This year, I used shavings from my grandpa’s wood shop as filler.
Step 2: Hard-boil and color eggs using Eco-Kid Egg Coloring Kit which is “made with natural and organic fruit, plant and vegetable extracts from annatto seed, curcumin, purple sweet potato and red cabbage.”
