If the kids overindulge on Easter eggs - or you just need a little break from the Easter Bunny’s basket - here are our favourite non-chocolate holiday treats to switch to.
1. Jam tarts
2. Ice lollies
When the sun comes out, so do the lollies. Tangy and refreshing, these fruit ices are made with the purée of Scottish raspberries - so the adults can enjoy one too.
3. Bear Claws
These natural snack bags are made with whole pure fruit and veg for a healthier snack - and high in fibre.
4. Fruit bags
An 80g serving counts as 1 portion of children's 5 a day fruit and vegetables. Fresh, frozen, dried, canned and juiced all count, but these bags are one of the easiest ways to make sure they get what they need, on the go.
5. Apple crisps
Kids love crisps, so this is a good way to get them eating more fruit. Ideal for leaving in the car for long journeys and days out, they make handy additions to school dinner pack-ups as well.
6. Fruit salad pots
One of these fruit pots will provide your kids with 1 of the recommended 5 a day portions of fruit & vegetables. It’s rich in vitamin C too - bonus.
