Planning the Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Dinner

Easter parties are likely to be one of the most treasured memories for any child and that’s why a lot of parents make special efforts when organizing Easter egg hunts and parties for their kids. Once an Easter party is on its way and the backyard is full of kids running around filling their baskets with chocolate eggs a lot of parents think ‘Mission Accomplished’ but these hunts and the Easter dinner is not easy to plan or to organize especially when you’re audience includes kids.

An Easter hunt, involving the search and subsequent devouring of multiple chocolate eggs is bound to get all parents thinking how high their kid’s sugar level is going to be and that the chances of getting the kids to bed on time are slim to none. Many of the meals eaten all through Easter day are bound to have some portion of processed sugar and the chocolate eggs only add to the fire. While parents can’t ignore the demand for Easter candy and can’t deny kids the chocolate treats that are associated with Easter they do try and have a reasonably healthy Easter dinner.

With a little effort the health value of Easter egg hunts and Easter dinner can be improved. While the chocolate eggs are somewhat hard to avoid the Easter party food can take a healthy twist by including things like fruit and encouraging Easter baskets with fruit instead of the usual Easter candy. Easter fruit doesn’t have to be things like pears tied together in green net and roasted apples. It can be something like fruit covered in chocolate which is more than enough to satisfy any child’s appetite with the added advantage that there’s minimum processed sugar or the dessert at the Easter dinner could have the healthier option of a fruit bouquet.

A lot more people are now turning to fruit bouquets and other fruit decorations over the chocolate eggs on Easter because they’re health wise and because they make for better gifts.
