More Natural & Healthy Treat Options – Just in Time for Easter!

With Easter just around the corner, families are stocking up on all kinds of candy and chocolate in preparation for the festivities. In fact, Americans are expected to spend approximately $2.2 billion on Easter candy this year, according to the National Retail Federation. This is clearly a huge market right now, as families hope to fill children’s Easter baskets with a variety of sweets and treats – most of which are often filled with artificial colors and sweeteners. However, we know that many parents are looking for more natural options of candies and sweets that contain less harmful ingredients for the whole family to enjoy.

To help you out, we’ve found ten companies dedicated to providing natural, healthier options for sweets and desserts. With vegan, all natural, organic, and some gluten-free options, the variety offered by these companies will be sure to meet the tastes of family and friends, not just on Easter, but all year round!
