Healthy Easter Basket Idea: Cheddar Bunny Carrot Shaped Treat Bags

How to make healthy easter snacks featuring annie's cheddar bunnies
If you are looking for healthy Easter basket ideas, you have come to the right place! 

When my oldest was just a toddler, we realized that finding healthy Easter treats was hard. There was so much candy and artificial food dye everywhere at Easter time! Luckily, making these healthy Easter treats is super easy and my kids love them! Even my second grade boy still loves eating these cheddar bunny crackers - so this healthy Easter basket idea is perfect for toddlers and big kids alike!

**An important note about plastic bags**
Beware of the triangle shaped party bags often sold in the seasonal section of department stores as the plastics used often contain questionable endocrine disrupting (read: they mess with your hormones!) ingredients. Instead, purchase baggies made for food that are explicitly labeled to be PVC, BPA and phthalate free. I personally use the bags from Whole Food's 365 brand as they are 100% polyethelene and free of these questionable ingredients.

Directions

STEP 1: Fill the bag

Open the bag and fill it with about a half cup of crackers. Check for "carrot-iness" (totally a word!) by making sure your bag is filled to the right level to make you happy with its carroty shape. Add more crackers if needed.

STEP 2: Trim the top

Use scissors to cut the zipper top edge off the top of the bag and trim the plastic as needed.
