Easter arrives on Sunday, and for many families that means indulging in some of their favorite holiday treats. None, however, are more popular than Peeps®. Here’s a fun fact we found on the amount of Peeps® that people will consume around the holiday:
“Americans consume 700 million of the marshmallow chicks and bunnies. At 32 calories per Peep, that's 22.4 billion calories worth of sugar and gelatin.”
Yes, that may seem like a lot, but let’s remember that this is one day out of the year. The important thing to keep in mind when letting yourself indulge on a holiday like Easter is to make sure that you are balancing your calories from what you eat and drink with those you burn through what you do when it comes to physical activity. So whether it is running around to capture all the eggs you can in your Easter egg hunt with friends and family or drinking a low- or no-calorie beverage, it’s up to you to make the choice that’s right for you when it comes finding that balance. Happy Easter!
