Pastel morsels of sugar and chocolate are now on display at seemingly every grocery store, drugstore and big-box store. But you don’t have to spend the whole Easter season looking the other direction.

Moderation — and information — can allow you an indulgence or two without ruining your diet.

If you’re counting your calories, for example, try a four-pack of Peeps marshmallow bunnies or a single-serving Peeps chocolate-covered marshmallow chick. It’ll set you back only 110 calories.

More worried about fat and cholesterol? Avoid chocolates like the Lindt Gold Bunny varieties, which are made with milk fat.

To help you further narrow the options, we’ve broken down the nutritional information for some of the most recognized Easter candy brands.
