So one thing that I noticed is that there is a huge difference in the behavior of children who don’t eat sugar and those who do. I’ve literally seen a sweet little child become defiant after eating sugar on more than one occasion. I’ve observed children in several different scenarios and have come to my own unscientific conclusion that I will lean toward the absence of sugar for young children.
Easter is right around the corner and that is the time for Peeps™, chocolate bunnies, jellybeans, Cadbury Eggs™, and more but this holiday, I am looking to create bags with no sugar items like boiled eggs that are dyed and sugar-free candy instead. There is even a better way to create an Easter basket that children will love, it’s an Easter bag!

I love sites like CafePress to create custom items and I used them this year to make these personalized tote bags.
In each personalized tote, I put a bunny t-shirt, African American books to inspire, their Easter outfit, and a stuffed animal. One of my favorite series of books is Little People, Big Dreams. They feature many inspirational people but I picked African-American leaders from the series to add to the Easter bags.
These are my favorite series of inspirational books to give as gifts for children.
This is just a new way to avoid sugar and still have children enjoy getting a special gift for Easter.
