Stats About Your Easter Baskets and How Not to Go Overboard
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:
