As a kid I would get up to 30 each year. Mum did take photos, and show people, but we were only allowed to keep 3 (our choice) and she made treats out of the rest for the kids in the neighbourhood, and at school. Also donated a lot.

My kids got one mini organic sugarless fat free easter egg made from ethical cocoa beans picked by hand by well paid and fully respected cocoa pickers under the light of a full moon. I also counteract this splurge of satan food by feeding them kale and quinoa for lunch and dinner. So ner.

DS got about 7 easter chocolate items, two from us, 3 from MIL and the rest was won in the school raffle (my parents got him lego) I let him have a little bit more today than I usually would, the rest will last a few weeks and DH and I will sneak half of it! 100 eggs is excessive!!

My girls got a pack of small solid eggs to share and a few small bunnies (they won't eat it all today). I don't mind if they over indulge today, it's half the fun We're too poor to over do it too much lol

I was one of those kids who got ridiculous amounts of chocolate for Easter. We never binged on it though...my sister and I would put our chocolate away in a big container each, and it would last us 6 months+. I can't imagine ever being okay with giving my kids the amount of chocolate we were given though.
This is the first year I've bought DD (2.5) any chocolate. I gave her 2 mini lindt bunnies (10g each) and 3 little lady bugs. Probably a total of 50g. My parents also gave her some, so she's ended up with about 120g of chocolate. She'll be allowed one a day until she has none left, though she's also been offering me some, meaning less for her to eat :P

My 2 DD'S who are 6 and 4.5 got a choc egg eggosaurus, Kmart brand which is quite big, one of those each a handful of little solid eggs and a small toy each. My DS who is 2 got a bigger toy and a small Cadbury white choc bunny, a choc lollypop thing.
It will be rationed out over a few weeks, and most probably shared amongst the family.
Oh and their nan gave them a Cadbury choc bunny each.
They have eaten far too much chocolate today and are completely feral. I'm over it now, can't wait till they go to bed or at least settle down. I won't hold my breath though.
Tomorrow can be a chocolate free day I'm thinking. Maybe a nice salad or fruit kind of day and less crazy annoying kids.
