Healthy Easter Treats and Mom's Library Linky Party

Easter is coming and I've been busily pinning a bunch of cute Easter treats to make with the kids. If you check out my Spring boards on Pinterest, you'll notice I've pinned a lot of deliciousness. There are  Easter bunnies made from rice krispies, birds nests covered in chocolate, and chocolate covered peep-sicles. (You know, because peeps don't have enough sugar in their natural form!) I even saw an empty tomb made from a chocolate donut and a mini oreo. Hallelujah!

I love an Easter morning sugar rush as much as anyone. But as the mom of preschoolers, I've learned you can have too much of a good thing. You don't want the kids ingesting a sugar laden breakfast only to crash from the sugar high in the middle of Grandma's Easter dinner.
As the calorie count on my Pinterest boards grew, I was happy to see several healthy options for Easter snacks show up on Mom's Library last week. These healthy Easter treats are just as cute but they won't wreck your diet or ruin your kids' teeth.

I hope you can find some healthy Easter treats that your family will enjoy. Don't forget to feed your brain this Easter too! Here are a few favorite books that are great to stuff in a basket in place of candy.
