Parents push a sugar-free Easter

Say it ain't so! Just two days ago, we were extolling the virtues of Easter chocolate for your health (dark chocolate, that is, and in small doses, mind you). Now we learn that parents are cracking down on Easter basket sweets. 

No chocolate bunnies, no jelly beans, no Peeps, says this piece in today's Sun by our colleague Jill Rosen.

Health experts say it's a welcomed change, considering that nationwide one in three children are overweight. The last thing an overweight child needs is a basket brimming over with junk food.

Even some stores are getting in on the trend, advertising Easter-themed gadgets rather than chocolate.

With all our talk about childhood obesity here, I'm interested to hear what you guys think. Good idea, or does Easter deserve a pass from the food police?
