Toxin-Free Easter Eggs

March 23rd, 2018


Can you believe that Easter is just around the corner? Easter is a wonderful time for gathering the family together, sharing a warm meal and, of course, coloring Easter eggs!

The problem with so many commercial food dyes is that they’re full of toxic chemicals that you or your kids wouldn’t want to be handling. Even though my own daughter, Elle, is not quite old enough yet to help dye Easter eggs, it’s something we’re looking forward to in the future, and I know that for many of you, it’s a big part of your own family tradition.

That’s why I created these toxin-free egg dyes, made from real, whole fruits and vegetables, so you can enjoy this fun tradition with your children worry-free! Happy Easter!
