Springtime and Healthy Easter Baskets

We are in SPRING

The flowers are blooming and its starting to rain like crazy, amidst bursts of warm sunshine and blue skies. I feel the sudden urge to eat better and get outside more. It’s like a natural shedding of the winter fur and trading in for sunshine on my skin.

What does Spring Mean to You?

For us, spring means…

  • Freshness 
  • Time to clean (and let go)
  • Chance for a new start
  • Planting seeds and reconnecting with nature
  • Letting go of winter laziness, letting in more SUNSHINE with spring energy!
  • Easter Chocolate!!!

At Juice Plus+ we believe in living healthy, in a realistic way! Easter is a big part of life in Europe, culturally even if you are not religious. There are chocolate bunnies, marshmallow chicks, and jelly candies all around us (even in the office.) No escape. But what about the children in our lives? And the teens who aren’t sure if they want an Easter basket? Do we always need to give them so many chocolates and sweets? 

In this blog, we give you 5 creative Healthy Easter Basket Ideas!

  1. Cherish your loved ones.
  2. Healthy Easter Baskets Ideas for Children

  5. Give the gift of plant-based nutrition this Easter!

1. Cherish Your Loved Ones.

We all want to feel cherished and loved. We want to feel seen and to be special. It is not about the chocolate, but that you remembered them and made something special for them. So why not explore something different in their Easter Baskets? Maybe even make a small basket for your partner!! See our healthy Easter basket ideas below.

2. Healthy Easter Basket Ideas for Children.


Rabbity Basket – Let the animals inspire you!

  • Pack in your little nest a book inspired by bunnies. Our favourite rabbit book: Guess How Much I Love You. By Sam McBratney.
  • Look for a baby rabbit stuffed animal – the tinier and fuzzier, the better!
  • Get a white ceramic bunny that your child can paint themselves.
  • Place one tiny dark chocolate bunny (low sugar.)
  • Add in a cookie cutter shaped like a bunny and make your own homemade bunny cookies.

Springtime Gardening Basket – Let nature and home-grown food inspire you!

  • Packets of seeds or seedlings from spring fruit and veg. Think strawberries and raspberries or cherry tomatoes. Fun to grow. Fun to pick of the vine!

4. Healthy Easter Basket Ideas for Adults.

When children are involved, often the adults are forgotten. It’s “all about the kids,” right? WRONG. We need love and affection too! And a little attention goes a long way. Pack an Easter Basket for your beloved or seal it in a large envelope. Here are some ideas on what to pack in an adult Easter Basket.

  • Picture of when you two first met.
  • A love letter or poem.
  • A ticket for a daytime date alone, no kids. Daytime, because who has energy at night!! Better moods are often had during the day.
  • Tiny bit of chocolate or sweet with promises of sweet kisses later. 
