Do you let your kids gorg on their Easter candy and be done with it or do you ration it allowing only so much at a time?

  • Easter & Christmas are the only days they can eat ALL THE CANDY they want. After awhile they stop on their own. Maybe because they aren't use to a LOT of candy.

    Ambr...too bad the bunny didn't leave a golden egg for each child.

  • I dont put much candy into my kids baskets, So they can eat it. This year each kid got 1 pack of peeps, 1 cadbury egg, some tootsie rolls and a few suckers.

  • I treat it like Halloween candy. They get candy in moderation....or after a while they get so distracted it sits till it hubby takes it to work and the coworkers finish it off.

  • Ah, they are kids! Who doesn't love a sugar loaded Sunday?!?!?!? I let them dive in to it, but the Easter Bunny doesn't bring a lot of candy to our house. He has always brought spring toys: baseballs, bats, bubbles, garden digging stuffs, etc!

  • They open the baskets, play with the new toys, eat some candy, have breakfast,eat some more candy, then they take a break(on their own) I think its fine to let them go at it, as then it is gone sooner. DD(8) learned last halloween, that going overboard isnt worth it, as she felt sick the next day, so now, she can limit herself on her own. :) DS is pretty good at regulating himself.

  • No, that is the traditional way. Even if you go to a public egg hunt, there would only be one golden egg.

  • Mine doesn't get much candy so it's not really much of an issue. But no, he won't be eating any of it till after he has breakfast.
