penthesilea: My kid doesn't have much of a sweet tooth.Slingshot & seed bombs are good. Mini art sets and blank journals to write/doodle in. A Yo-yo, those little super bouncy balls, bird call thing, binoculars, pocket knife, compass, local maps, code books, a watch, Mad Libs, and so on...Basically, just treat the basket like a Christmas stocking.
ReapTheChaos: If you put carrots and apples in your kids Easter baskets you may as well not celebrate the holiday. There is nothing wrong with candy so long as it's eaten in moderation and the kids diet is otherwise well balanced. This sounds as lame as people who give charity donations as gifts.
luxup: WhyteRaven74: Perhaps your parents should've taught you to not present false dichotomies.What do you want, a farkin dissertation? This is a comment board on Fark.When it comes to kids (of which I have 2) and their eating habits there ARE in fact two kinds of parents. Those that careful about what their kids eat, and those that feed them whatever is handy like chips, soda, candy etc...Don't believe me? Well then you don't have kids. If you do and are the type of parent who actually cares when your kids stuffs down their gullet then I am sure you have been in a situation where you have to decline a friend offering your kid a snack because it's crap.By the way, of most of the kids I know around my daughters age who were allowed to eat ice cream and other junk food in what others would call regular amounts well guess what? Most of those kids, have been to the doctors and/or hospital for digestive/bowel issues that the parents have no idea what could be causing them.My kids, only been to the Dr for regular check ups. Sooo suck on that.
HalfOffOffer: We don't do candy holidays. On Halloween they trick-or-treat then we trade them their candy for an awesome toy. This easter their baskets will have a huge Tonka truck in them. We don't do candy. And guess what... my kids are healthy. They don't get sick. They've never taken a single medication. They've never had an ear infection. They still have their tonsils, appendixes, and everything else. They don't have asthma or acid reflux and don't require psychiatric medication.Fark: They're not vaccinated either. suck it.
luxup: My kids, only been to the Dr for regular check ups. Sooo suck on that.
luxup: But still, diabetes is something all parents should strive to give their children right?
