With Easter this weekend, Slider's Healthy Thought Today is About Easter Candy!

Did you know…

  • Each Marshmallow Peep take 6 minutes to create and contains 7 grams of sugar.
  • Over 16 billon jelly beans are eaten in America at Easter. That's enough to circle the globe nearly 3 times!
  • 1 Cadbury Creme Eggs contains 150 calories, 4 grams of saturated fat (20% of a 2,000 calorie diet), and 20 grams of sugar.
  • The average 7oz hollow chocolate bunny clocks up 1,050 calories. According to 75% of Americans, bunnies should be eaten ears first!

However, some of these treats are only available once a year, so pick and choose when to indulge and do so in moderation!
