I am taking part in weekly challenges with AXA PPP healthcare to make small changes one week at a time to become healthier and happier!
This week it’s all about making bite sized changes this Easter to switch to a smaller or even dark Chocolate Egg!
So hands up who actually ends up with a 15 Easter eggs per Child or even adult?!
A couple of years ago our children were verging on double figures with the amount of Easter eggs they had and with some humongous ones on offer it was like a nightmare to not only police the intake but also to know how much if any we should be giving them.
Now being on a long-term weight loss journey I have been super careful to try to eliminate 99% of my chocolate intake out. However there is no way I could ever cut out all chocolate or that of my family, so finding out that in fact some chocolate has some health benefits is always going to be music to my ears .. not only that but with Chocolate being a mood booster everyone should have some (although some more than others!)
Last year we were really lucky to be invited to an Easter egg hunt, having never taken part in one before we were thrilled, all the eggs were little tiny ones and not only that there were baby chicks everywhere too to collect, meaning Joshua spend more of his time collecting than he did eating!
This year we are not only reducing the size of the eggs we buy for our children and also for the others we buy for to, along with making it more about some family time and crafts!
So this week we are on a mission to sidestep the chocolate overload and to build traditions into the family’s Easter that is not all about eating to excess and that my children will pass down to their children (well that’s what I am hoping) we have an Easter hunt (did you notice its missing the egge bit) my little guy will be hunting down plastic eggs, chicks, bunnies, along with some surprises and a few tiny chocolate eggs. Not only that we are going to do an easter bonnet decorating session and we also making some easter cards too.
So how are you spending your Easter? more the point how many eggs will you be eating?
