Granted, it may take a little ingenuity on our part, but the holidays often present a good opportunity to not only indulge our children or grandchildren but to present healthy treats in a fun way! My granddaughter, Kenzie, was recently sharing her excitement over the Easter basket she received Sunday. A few months ago she lost her top right incisor, which she swore was her sweet tooth. She was tickled it didn’t affect her ability to enjoy the huge chocolate bunny which sat right front in center of her basket! Yes, I admit I may know a little something about how he ended up there but I know nothing about what happened to his left ear. 😉 He may have gotten first mention, but Kenzie did also point out he was surrounded by “rabbit food”. After she indulged her sweet tooth, she munched away on carrots, raisins, pears, celery sticks, and cherry tomatoes too. Her basket was a fun way to incorporate a little of both worlds.
