It seems like Christmas is only just over when suddenly Easter eggs go on display in the shops! The kids have hardly got over the chocolate onslaught from Christmas and then you doscover that Creme Eggs are in the shops!

Chocolate Free Easter Gift Ideas for Kids 2024

For this reason I always try to cut down on the number of chocolate eggs arriving in my home, especially as Easter is usually very close to both my kids birthdays, my birthday and St. Valentine's Day.

Our house isn't a chocolate-free zone at Easter, but I do try and find some ways of reducing the amount of chocolate that my chldren receive. I just shudder to think of the effect on their teeth for a start....

These ideas would also be brilliant for children who cannot eat chocolate for any reason such as allergies and intolerences.
