In the run-up to Easter, the shops are stacked full of rows upon rows of easter eggs. When J was younger and allergic to dairy this made me really sad for him. Now he’s older and can eat chocolate I have the fear of a sugar-induced meltdown.
Now that J can eat dairy I do like to limit the amount of chocolate he has, as I noticed over Christmas we had a lot of toddler meltdowns when I said no to chocolate. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking this but I wish we could limit the number of chocolate people buy our children for Easter. Easter is a religious holiday after all and the egg is the main focus, not the chocolate.
As we are reaching Easter I know we are going to have an influx of chocolate in the house again. Don’t get me wrong I’m not totally anti chocolate but I know that J will leave a lot of the chocolate and then the chocolate will be hidden and I will end up snacking on it.
If like us you would rather not put on a stone over the holidays or deal with a sugar-induced toddler meltdown, this gift guide may come in use. This is also a handy guide for those of you who have to buy for CMPA children.
