Teens Easter Basket Ideas (no candy needed)

This is a cute idea for those of you that know you or your child/children have food allergies/intolerances. Candy doesn't have to be the main attraction in the Easter basket.. Also remember that an Easter basket can be a very romantic gift for a loved one as well. A coupon for special time with you is also a great idea for children or adults.

If you choose to give candy there are many allergen free brands, and vegan chocolate as well. (Divvies and Surf Sweets to name a few) Try not to do artificial colors and try to cut back or get treats with natural sugars and less sugars, most candies my family enjoys for Easter I make myself by melting GFCF (Gluten Free/Casein-Dairy Free) chocolate and adding other ingredients like nuts or mini marshmallows(you can make these as well corn free) or nut butters or dried or fresh fruits. Raw food truffles are also a great low sugar/real fruit treat. Go for raw food treat recipes that use dates and other fruits for sugar instead of refined sugars.

See my recipe blogs for ideas

***Again the warning: only have sweets/sugars if your body tolerates them and also do not overdo, refined sugar is one of the worst things for you and your immune system
