Veggie Booty as Easter basket "grass"
This brilliant Easter basket hack comes from Moxie of Ask Moxie (a site you should ALL visit):
I started using Veggie Booty [the green, cheese-puff-like snack most kids devour despite its healthy profile -- Ed.] in the bottom of my kids' Easter baskets instead of that icky green plastic grass. It gives the grasslike effect because of the color, but it's totally edible, even for babies. It won't clog your vacuum, and it's a nice savory contrast to all the candy. If it ends up outside, you don't have to pick it up because it'll dissolve in the rain, and your pets can eat it and it won't choke them.
