Start with a natural foundation by ditching florescent plastic green grass and using USDA Organic hay instead. Tim's Real Grass smells lovely and also supports green-agriculture jobs in rural areas.
We spotted these beautiful, plant-based food colorings at Natural Products Expo West; they're completely free of creepy artificials like Red #40 or Yellow #5. When asked whether they work for Easter eggs, they helpfully replied: "We have had success with Blue, Yellow, and Orange. We found the red coloring turns the eggshell to a dark maroon/ deep purple (not as attractive as we would like). We used 1 packet color to 1 cup of water, plus 1 teaspoon baking soda or vinegar."
Certified organic and non-GMO, these fun treats are also free of corn syrup, artificial colors and flavors, and the 10 most common food allergens, including gluten and dairy.
Freeze-dried, USDA Organic strawberries and bananas make a perfect, kid-friendly, and healthful Easter basket treat, with no added sugars or preservatives. Gluten-free, too.
A sly way to balance out the sugar: These kid-friendly, organic toothpastes actually taste good enough to eat, boosted with organic caledula and natural flavors (banana, blueberry, etc.), with no gluten, animal byproducts, fake colors, palm oil derivatives, fluoride, GMOs or sugar (of course). And the packaging is adorable!
Put down those Peeps! This year, create eco- and health-friendly Easter baskets—without sacrificing whimsy—with these five organic and all-natural choices.
