Chocolate-free gifts for kids this Easter?
Is chocolate a permitted indulgence for kids over Easter? Or should we be conscious of the amount of chocolate being consumed this weekend and give children chocolate-free gifts?
Advocacy group The Parents' Jury are encouraging people to give kids chocolate-free gifts to limit the amount of sweets being consumed.
Manager of The Parents' Jury Corrina Langelaan said that while they're not lobbying for parents to "ban the bunny", they're looking to reduce the levels of chocolate being given to kids around Easter.
Corrina Langelaan suggested people give gifts such as egg holders, bunny slippers, books and toys to children, instead of the traditional chocolate bunnies and eggs.
LISTEN: Manager of The Parents' Jury Corrina Langelaan speaks to Steve Murphy:
We are in Australia so ban the bunny and adopt the Bilby for goodness sakes!!
In this day and age, I cant believe the majority of Aussies go out and buy an easter bunny made in china for some stupid tradition that is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism and has nothing to do with anything Australian when we could at least make an effort to adopt the Bilby or a Bandicoot instead of a pesty Hare or Rabbit etc. We are filing the pockets of overseas companies with food products made in china and fed to our children. Quite scary really.David Saturday 14 April, 2012 - 1:31 AM
