It seems as though the supermarkets start stocking up on hot cross buns, Easter eggs and chocolate bunnies as soon as they pack away the Christmas crackers.
Nearly every aisle has some sort of foil wrapped chocolate delight trying to tempt you off your healthy eating plan.
Here at the Healthy Mummy we are all about moderation, so it’s not a matter of vowing never to enjoy a hot cross bun or a chocolate egg ever again.
The key is not to go overboard, and to have preparations in place so that you can enjoy a treat at Easter time without feeling as though you are missing out. And of course have that Lindt bunny on Easter Sunday if you really want it.
Today we have some great ideas for some sweet treats that you can enjoy with family and friends over the Easter break that won’t derail your healthy eating plan.
