10 top tips to stay on track this Easter

Easter can be one of those times during the year we can fall ‘off track’ a little. The most important thing to remember is, if you are celebrating Easter, that it is just one day out of the whole entire year and if you are wanting to eat chocolate, enjoy it!

1. Buy non-chocolate gifts

5 Easter Gifts Kids Will Love That Aren’t Chocolate

Avoid temptation! If you have friends and family asking to buy gifts for your children, offer some non-chocolate ideas: Arts and craft, pyjamas, bath bombs/bubble bath, books, vouchers, puzzles or games.

2. Make healthier alternatives

If you are entertaining see our Healthy Mummy Easter Ebook filled with healthier recipe ideas.

3. Use plastic eggs instead of chocolate

Try choosing smaller chocolates or hollow eggs for easter hunts. The kids (and adults) will still see and collect lots of colourful eggs without having excess left over after Easter.

We love reusable plastic egg shaped containers that you can fill. You can find these in most supermarkets and these are great for egg hunts and gifts. You can fill them with anything you like, small toys, lollies/chocolate or treats of your choosing or even clues for an egg hunt.

4. Melt down leftover chocolate instead of eating it

10 ways to stick to your healthy eating plan this EASTER

If you find you have excess chocolates left over at the end of Easter and wish to avoid temptation, try chopping, melting or crushing your chocolates into one of our recipes, such as the Wholemeal Choc Chip Muffins and Peanut Bubble Crunch. 

You can also freeze leftover chocolates so they are ‘out of sight’ but still available for a sweet treat when you choose.

5. Choose dark chocolate over light chocolate

Choose dark chocolate where you can. Dark chocolate can offer a lower calorie, lower sugar option whilst still enjoying the chocolate flavour.

6. Avoid filled and flavoured chocolate eggs

Instead, utilise plain chocolate varieties if you are being cautious of your chocolate and calorie intake over Easter.

7. Eat before heading to your family gatherings

Eating breakfast or a snack with a source of protein before you head to your Easter get togethers can help you make more mindful choices rather than arriving hungry.

8. Be mindful of your serving sizes

If you are watching your calorie intake over Easter, think about how much you’re putting on your plate. Often Big chocolate bunnies and eggs can be a family serving. Look at the labels and make an informed decision.

9. Get moving

Keep active with the family and make it fun. Often Easter means some businesses are closed so your whole family might get the chance to spend some extra time together so make the most of it! A family walk, a game of sport in the backyard, a trip to the beach, a play at the park can be great ways to move your body without it seeming like a chore.

10. Drink lots of water

Focus on your water intake. Try to keep a water bottle nearby. Sipping on water can help with hunger and over indulging.
