Easter is just around the corner! In fact, my 3.5 year-old is super excited about Easter. He has a couple of Easter parties next week and is very much looking forward to egg hunts and of course the "treats" AKA sugary, chocolatey, marshmallowy candies. Don't get me wrong, I love those ooey gooey, yummy, delectable treats, but sometimes the holidays bring on a massive sugar overload. This Easter, rather then overload little ones with candy, how about fill their Easter baskets with some goodies that are more natural, eco-friendly and fun! Here are a few of my favorite Easter goodies for little ones:
BabyLegs Legwarmers and Socks
With all sorts of adorable prints and beautiful colors, you're sure to find the perfect pair of BabyLegs legwarmers or socks for your little one! BabyLegs will help protect your little one's knees and legs while crawling around, protect your little ones from the elements (perfect for layering during the cold winter months) plus BabyLegs help make diaper changing and potty training much easier. BabyLegs are super soft and super stretchy plus they will fit most babies from newborn up to age two. They're adorable and a must-have for your little one's Easter basket!

Everyone likes to smell sweet and Sweet Knee Skin Care will definitely leave your little one smelling sweet and clean. From their Oatmeal Cookie Bath, to the Hulababy Car and Bun Glaze (my personal favorite), Sweet Knee's products will help keep your little one's skin clean, soft and moisturized. Toxin free and with calendula, marshmallow, plantain and chamomile, you can feel confident about what you're putting on your little one's skin! Visit www.sweetkee.com for more sweet products!
Squooshi Reusable Food Pouches
My little ones love apple sauce pouches and loved baby food pouches when they were younger. I loved them, too. However, the environmental impact (over 2 billion single use pouches end up in landfills every year) and the expensive cost for individual pouches quickly made me change my tune. That is, until I came across Squooshi reusable and refillable food pouches! Simple and convenient for baby food, pureed food, and smoothies, Squooshi pouches are resealable and can go directly from filling to freezer to your bag. Visit www.squooshi.com to order your own super adorable reusable food pouches!

I love Born Free products and one of my favorites from Born Free is their Twist 'N Pop Straw Cup. Born Free's 14-ounce Twist 'N Pop Straw Cups are perfect for active toddlers, like my 2.5 year-old and 3.5 year-old boys! The soft, silicone straw prevents spills and helps protect your little one's mouth. The twisting closure keeps the straw clean. Contoured shape is easy for little hands to hold.
