Sugar FREE Easter Basket Fillers

Easter Basket Fillers

Most of us are trying to cut sugar from our diets more and more lately, and if you grew up in my days, you know that the “norm” for Easter basket & plastic egg fillers is/was candy AKA Sugah!  Here are some alternatives I found that you can use instead of that sugar-induced-make-my-kid-go-crazy candy.  This includes food & other items!

Oh! Did I mention that these aren’t just for the kids…a couple nifty ideas for adults too!! Grandmas, Grandpas, Moms, Dads and even your grown up kids and grandkids can get an Easter Basket.

Hope my kids are reading this!!


Goldfish Carrots

Goldfish Carrots -This is my top one.  I pinned it a few weeks back   and it has been repinned lots! She gives you a step by step on how to make. You could put something other than goldfish in here, just go for orange.

    1. Thanks so much Paula! Candy is so overrated, right?

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Have a great day!


  1. Fantastic ideas, Bobbi! I usually includet a mix of candy and small toy items, but I’ll find the candy still laying in the bottom of his basket two weeks later. I think he’d be just as happy without it. Thanks for sharing some new ideas 🙂 XO


    1. You must be one of the lucky ones. Candy was the first to go in my kids baskets. 🙂 Maybe we can change that, one basket at a time.

      Thanks for taking the time to cruise on by. Have a great day!
