Non Candy Easter Basket Ideas

There are many reasons why you might want to keep candy out of the Easter Basket this year. Maybe you have children with allergies or food sensitives, maybe your family is junk food free or maintains a diet that wouldn’t include candy, or maybe you’re just sick and tired of all the candy! The latter would be true in my case as you would in my house that much of the Halloween candy is still hidden away in a bag and will get thrown out when Halloween comes around again.
