  • Poor kid. Migraines? I can't handle them as an adult.
    What about fruit snacks, gold fish crackers, eggs filled with money is great, chips (i am mentally going through what my grandma give us for easter :) ) if he likes dried fruits, that would be good.

  • Dried fruits are great. They have tons of options on the raisin isle at the grocery store. My son loves dried papaya, mango and pomegrate best bc they taste like candy but are still healthy. Packs of Gold Fish, Pretzels, Craisins, etc are good. On the juice isle we have these little prefilled juice bottles with characters like Bob the Builder, Snoopy etc those are a big hit around here. Archer's at Target makes a great fruit slice (dried pureed fruit and vegetables just 9 grams of sugar too) those are going in my sons basket. Try adding some fun books too check out my website :) www.ubah.com/u2688 Happy Easter!

  • Toys R us now sales some specialty foods. I would ask if you are not the parent what ingredient they are avoiding in the candy because at Toys r us they sale natural jelly beans and gummy worms. They are free of food dyes and extra stuff.

    It's in their specialty food aisle that has organic etc..stuff. They same very small white bags with blue writing. I can't remember the name. Also they sale stauffer animal cookies that are natural and free of high fructose corn syrup. NOT all the stuaffers are, so read the bag. The one I bought there was a light blue bag with the mini animals.

    Hope that helps...

  • When I was 12 I had to get a bunch of fillings and a root canal done and my mom wouldn't let me have candy for a while. She made my basket with a whole pineapple, a whole coconut, and other "cool" fruit that I wouldn't get normally. I loved it!!

    How about a Nice book, DVD. Target has a great 5.00 section, Play Doh, Sidewalk Chalk, Coloring book, Teddy Grahams, Gold fish crackers, Fruit snacks, Or if he is older a gift card to rent a video game or movie, an action figure, Small Legos kit, Sugarfree gum, Pepperoni sticks, Sunflower seeds.
