While I love Reese’s Easter Eggs and Sweet tarts Chickie’s, Duckies and Bunnies, I don’t necessarily want to give those to my toddlers. So I’m going to change it up a little and make it all about being a fun, healthy kid and emphasize all the things he loves.
Ok, now on to the fun stuff.
- Individual packs of Craisins. E LOVES these things. They are every bit as sweet as Sweettarts but with a little added punch of the good stuff (antioxidants).
- Animal Crackers. Another favorite without adding too much sugar.
- Individual Peanut Butter Packs. E’s big thing right now (and I assume any toddler) is dipping. Everything gets dipped in something. These little packs are easy to give to him with some crackers. It keeps him busy for quiet a while and I know he’s getting something good.
- Goldfish Crackers – Again, a hands down favorite. I love the whole grain ones.
- Ella’s Kitchen Food Pouches – E’s not a baby but we still struggle with getting good veggies in him. This company makes food pouches that combine fruits and veggies. They are great. My sister in law introduced them to me and we’ve been loving them ever since. I’ll probably add a few of these to his basket as well
Toys and other things:
- Tickets to the zoo or other local kids place
- Kite or frizbee
- New pj’s or blanket
- Books (see some of our favorite books here)
- Coins I want E to learn the value of saving. My grandparents did this with me and it was always so much fun. Instead of filling these plastic eggs with candy, I think I’ll fill them with coins. After we’ve had the fun of looking for them, we’ll show E how to put the money in his piggy bank
