How to have a fun Easter without the sugar high

14 Mar How to have a fun Easter without the sugar high

Easter is synonymous with chocolate (excessive chocolate), loads of sugar and kids crazily running around hunting for Easter eggs, but if that’s not your thing, you’ve got little bubs, or your kids have allergies, or you just want a healthier option, we’ve got some fantastic ideas to up the fun and lower the sugar!  Let’s talk about how we can have a fun Easter without the sugar high.

Here’s the only list of Easter fun you will need to make sure the kids have a fantastic time!


  1. With Easter being early and warm this year, its’ a great time to make some awesome chocolate yogo! This amazing dessert has all the flavour of chocolate yogo but is a much healthier version, and kids love it. Not only is this awesome as a smooth dessert, but pop it into some Zestio icepops, freeze and you’ve got amazing chocolatey ice blocks perfect for sharing at Easter time.  You could also try our fab chocolate milk ice pops which are super simple to make!

  1. Easter is a great time to have fun as a family and playdough is perfect for little ones. I love sending in playdough as an alternative to chocolate for preschool gifts.  Once you’ve seen how easy it is to make homemade, you won’t go back!  These playdough mats are the perfect way to put the playdough to use, making lots of sugar free Easter themed fun.

  1. Sticking to the theme of chocolate, when trying to cut down sugar is hard work. Unless you try out our awesome chocolate bean puddings.  Free from gluten, nuts and refined sugars, they are perfect for an Easter dessert, served fancily in cocktail glasses or even popped into Zestio pouches for dessert on the go at an Easter picnic. You’ll find it hard to believe they contain sweet potato and beans!chocolate bean pudding easter fun without the sugar high
  1. Get the kids to help out with decorating the house by making these adorable Easter bunnies. Not only are they oh so cute, but they also use up loo rolls!  Painted and using just a few bits from the craft box, they are fit to decorate the table for a family Easter lunch, or to brighten up the house.
