Children anticipate the arrival of the Easter Bunny with as much glee as they do Santa at Christmas. While Santa usually brings an abundance of toys, the Easter Bunny brings chocolate. Mountains of it.

A couple of Easter eggs as a treat won’t cause too much of a problem, but many people buy and give and eat as though more is better. In the case of all the sugar in Easter eggs, more is definitely not better.
