Fun & healthy Easter treats the whole family can enjoy

Yoghurt easter egg popsicles

If you want to enjoy the last of the autumn warmth you’ll need something refreshing to feed your kids after they have found the very last hidden egg. Try some tasty popsicles made with yoghurt, sweet berries and crunchy granola, mix and freeze in egg-shaped moulds.


Easter bunny eggs

Make an adorable alternative to chocolate bunnies by using decorated boiled eggs. Get creative, radishes for the ears, celery for whiskers and sliced black olives for eyes. Set the bunnies on a bed of tuna and lettuce, step back to admire your handiwork and give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back for your healthy snack alternative. 


Bunny pancakes

Start Easter off with a healthier alternative to the usual hot-cross bun with our super healthy multi-grain banana pancakes. If your inner master chef s alive and well, attempt a bunny shape by using a scoop of low-fat yoghurt for a tail and paws. For added flair, add a few banana slices and mini chocolate chips.
