When it comes to snack and treat ideas for Easter, it’s easy to pick the ready-made chocolate, jelly bean or M&M snacks. Rice Krispies snacks have also been a favorite among parents for many years. There’s nothing wrong with these types of treats for kids but if you’re looking for some healthier or different (but still fun) snacks to help balance everything out, we have some great ideas that your kids will love.

4. Easter Egg Breakfast Popsicles

Easter morning can often start off with chocolate, but if you don’t want that to be the focus of your Easter morning, make these fantastic breakfast pops the night before.

Use some chocolate molds to create fun patterns on your egg-shaped breakfast and serve on a lolly stick or popsicle stick.

5. Bunny Breadsticks

Easter dinner can be a time for adults to dig into some of their favorite foods, but for kids, they often miss their kid-friendly foods like grilled cheese and Kraft dinner!

When signing up to bring something for Easter supper, volunteer to make breadsticks! Involve your kids in the making of them so they have some fun ownership over the big kid meal.
