While my boys (7&4) will get some candy in their Easter baskets, I definitely make it my mission each year to keep the candy and junk food in there down to a minimum.  And I definitely remember going on a hunt when they were smaller to find fun alternatives to candy to put into the Easter Eggs.  (I wasn’t up for giving my toddler jelly beans anyway)

If you have a baby or toddler, you’ve hopefully heard of HappyFAMILY, a wonderful family that makes organic and healthy food options for young children.  I received a pitch from them in my inbox about using some of the products in lieu of candy for the Easter eggs and I thought it was a great suggestion!

They suggest HAPPYBABY Pouches for Easter Egg hunts for the baby!  The pouch is fun to squish, brightly colorful and perfect for a backyard hunt.  The Pouches are made with only the purest organic fruits and vegetables, with no added sugars.

They also mention using HAPPYPUFFS are the perfect swap. Made with whole grains, packed with vitamins and minerals, and available in a variety of delicious flavors, HAPPYPUFFS replace those empty calories with a healthy snack to sustain additional hunting!

I thought I’d mention both as I think they are fab ideas.  The email was timely too as I had recently bought several boxes of Annie’s Organics Bunny Rabbits that I kept meaning to tell you all about.

My boys love these little organic cookies and I plan on putting these into Easter Eggs that I hide around the house.  Thought they were appropriate since they are little bunnies and all.


  1. Gread idea to subsititue ‘goog’ treats. My publix sells those Annie’s bunny shaped treats, pretty sure. . will double check next visit. . .

  2. typo error! LOL- meant to type good not goog! :o)

  3. Sonja Heiser says

    The Happy Baby/Happy Tots pouches are great for toddlers/preschoolers. My almost 3 year old LOVES the Banana, Peach, Mango (with salba); the Spinach, Mango; and the Cinnamon, Apple, Sweet Potato (with salba) pouches. She sees them as a treat; I see them as a way to sneak in some whole grains and veggies! She’s a sweetheart and shares them from time-to-time, and they taste really good!

  4. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be
    on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thanks
