Easter is a time filled with well-intentioned egg hunts, trips to see the grandparents and messy arts and crafts. For most families, it's also a time for chocolate and lots of it.
In fact, Wren Kitchens reckon that the average child receives 13 eggs from relatives! Er, we are dubious.
Whatever your stance on chocolate treats for your little ones, of course, it is completely up to you! You may be in the small Cadbury Creme Egg camp, you may be in the 'sod it, it's Easter camp!' and you may be in the no-added-sugar-no-matter-whatever-day-it-is camp.
However, it's also great to know exactly what your children are scoffing this Easter, so you can make a well-informed choice. Knowledge is power, after all.
Here is all their favourite Easter treats with the best and worst offenders (with some as much sugar as 11 Krispy Kreme doughnuts!)
Some aren't even that terrible, considering it's, well, chocolate.
Cadbury Mini Eggs
Shockingly, the research suggests that of the smaller treats on offer a 90g bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs is one of the higher calorie choices - with a total of 444 kcal, 61.5g of sugar, and 27.9g of fat.
Based on the governments guidelines
for recommended daily sugar intake, just one bag alone would see you edging close to your daily allowance of 90g.
To put that into perspective, that’s the equivalent amount of sugar in nearly five original glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts - in just one packet.
