This shouldn’t mean you have to completely miss out on your favourite Easter treats though. In fact, you can eat slightly healthier things that still have a seasonal twist.

Take this recipe for hot cross bun porridge from MOMA Foods – it features the ground mixed spice and raisin goodness of the classic baked good, but isn’t quite so stodgy and heavy. It’s pretty much the perfect way to start your Easter Sunday, leaving you primed and ready to attack your cupboard full of chocolate.
