Obesity experts in Kent have come up with some top tips on how to survive Easter for parents with overweight children.
MEND - which stands for Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do it! - works with families across the county to help them get healthier and fitter.
One in three children in the South East is either overweight or obese, and MEND says Easter can be particularly challenging for them with supermarkets full of chocolate.
Jo Cook, MEND Regional Manager for the South East said: "Easter can be a really difficult time for many families trying to live healthier lives. Suddenly Easter chocolates, sweets and cakes appear everywhere making it hard to resist temptation. In response MEND has come up with some top tips to help families steer clear of these unhealthy foods and instead focus on family fun over the holiday."
MENDs Easter suggestions:
MEND run programmes in Dover, Thanet, Ashford, Shepway, Canterbury and Swale - you can get details on local events by calling 0800 849 4000
