Easter is a wonderful time to be together. But it’s also a time when children may pack on the pounds. A poll in England recently showed that the average child will receive £56 worth of chocolate eggs or presents at Easter and that they will eat 8000 calories on Sunday! the average child will receive 8 Easter eggs, which equates to 8000 calories.
Now, most children don’t eat all of those treats in a day, but the typical child will east those over four days.
The survey, carried out by vouchercloud.com., is certainly a good warning for us as Easter approaches.
