Easter would probably be more pleasant without dealing with the sugar high’s and low’s.

However, we’re not saying to completely ditch the candy.

What would Easter be without the chocolate bunnies and Peeps?!? 

As you know, we are all about the unconventional Easter basket and the same goes for our candy stuffers.

We’re swapping out a lot of the traditional holiday candy because our kids are THOSE kids who go bananas with a little taste of sugar.

Plus, we’re still working on getting rid of that baby weight.

Who else still has that problem after a year?

Our roundup of 15 “healthy” candy alternatives still allow you to “live a little” without feeling so guilty.

Plus, your dentist will love these substitutes.
