Supermarkets and gourmet food stores are hitting consumers with a bright and sparky array of Easter temptations designed to loosen control of both our appetite and weekly grocery budget.
Add kids in to the equation and resisting the pull becomes even harder. For those keen to keep Easter treats to the weekend try these helpful insights:
- You don’t eat turkey everyday leading up to Christmas, so why overindulge in hot cross buns? Instead plan a big Easter brunch using all those seasonal treats as the centre piece so the family has something to look forward to.
- Ditto chocolate eggs. If you really must buy, keep them stashed away for a large-scale, festive Easter hunt eggstravaganza come Easter Sunday.
- If kids really want to get stuck in to the spirit, try boiling eggs and painting the shells at home. Interactive and fun, it beats scoffing chocolate every time.
- Try the same with Easter bonnets, or make an Easter countdown calendar so the kids can tick off the days and enjoy the anticipation.
- Load your car, handbag or school bag with a 150ml Décor Realseal storer or 300ml Purple lunchbox packed with dried fruits and nuts for those times when hunger makes temptation harder to resist.
