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.
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.
luxup: But still, diabetes is something all parents should strive to give their children right?
luxup: Yup, hate only the parents who want to make sure their kids are healthy. The kids are still happy because the parents are actually involved and make sure they have fun.ORYou could be like the tons of parents I see who let their kids drink soda and juice every day, feed them chips for snacks and on days like Easter give them more candy to eat than they usually get other days.I mean, it's not like we have an obesity problem here in the States so bad that more and more of our kids are getting diabetes...oh wait, we do and they are.But still, diabetes is something all parents should strive to give their children right?
No Such Agency: Di Atribe:wooden spoons, spatulas (she loves to bake)Teach a man to fish...
Agarista: When I was about 10, mom put a VHS of the Life of Brian in my Easter basket.
luxup: My kids, only been to the Dr for regular check ups. Sooo suck on that.
