Easter is on Sunday and to nobody's surprise, 90% of children's Easter baskets will contain some sort of candy or chocolate.


52% of Easter candy connoisseurs prefer their chocolate eggs to be filled with cream or caramel, 32% like their chocolate eggs to be solid, and only 16% like it hollow.

Four out of five parents admit to stealing candy from their kids' Easter baskets, no word on who they blame the theft on.

91% of parents plan on using Easter as an opportunity to talk to their kids about balance when it comes to eating candy. Here are some tips to help with that:

  1. Buy small. Meaning the candy and the Easter basket itself. A small basket won't take as much candy to fill and fun-size candy makes a huge difference in sugar intake.
  2. Fill it with stuff other than candy. Like stickers, pencils, LEGOs, crayons, and other art supplies.
  3. Set some expectations. According to a dietician, one easy way to limit your kid's candy intake is to include a note from the Easter Bunny, telling them how much they can eat each day. Then you don't come out looking like the bad guy.
