Sunday Says ~ Get Snacking for Easter…a Little Healthier ~ The Stylista

No need to be this extreme

what a sweetheart, she ate them anyway.

Let's get ready for Easter…a little healthier.  Yes the Kids want candy, but you can make some substitutions that they will go nuts over!

If you are up to it, how about a crepe, filled some all natural preserves and a little dollop of whipped cream.

Who wouldn't be tweeting about these cool juice boxes

Oh My!  the cuteness level is a at a fifteen on this bunny face

Fresh sliced fruit kabobs, super easy

And now for the…ahem… carrots?  Baked cracker snacks fill these pastry bags.
