Ditch the candy for these cute Easter basket ideas for your little one!
I love holidays that are filled with candy as much as the next mom, but my kids do not need all that sugar.
Seriously! (That is why I eat all the candy for them 😉 ).
I do my best to eat healthily and to feed my little ones a diet that consists of actual fruits and vegetables, not just gummy snacks shaped like them.
So when a holiday rolls around that is heavily based on candy (Halloween, Easter, Christmas), I do my best to give them stuff that won’t make them pre-diabetic.
So with that in mind, here are 32 Easter baskets for toddlers.
