As the title asks, when did you start giving your little ones chocolate / Easter eggs?
My bub is 17 months, and we haven't really given him any chocolate yet. The in laws think we're being mean!

DD (our first) didn't have chocolate for a couple of years. DS had it much earlier!

Not mean at all! Your child, your decision! My girls didn't get chocolate until after 2.

I didn't get a choice in it at 17m for her second Easter. We went out and before I knew it DH's cousin had unwrapped an egg for her and was handing her another one. She got the runs something shocking, so when we saw them again a few days later I was insisting that they don't give her any - do you think they would listen?!? They weren't the ones who had to deal with the aftermath!
My 2nd got to try chocolate a lot earlier. He was such a fussy eater I would offer him anything and everything just to get him accustomed to some variety in his diet. He loves chocolate but doesn't gorge himself like his big sister still does (takes after her mum! lol) and this morning didn't even finish one hunting egg.

Your not mean. Each family needs to decide for themselves
I have no clue. It wasn't a planned thing. So anytime after they were on solid food properly. Chocolate isn't a issue in our house. Dd decided when she was 12 she didn't like it anymore and hasn't touched it since.

Both our girls had no choc / junk food till at least 2.
How is it being mean? They have no idea what they are missing!

I think it was when DS was around 2 years old. We always introduced foods at our discretion and wouldn't have let anyone pressure us into giving DS anything we weren't comfortable with.
Try not to be concerned about what others think, just do what feels right for your child.
Grandparents can be a bit OTT with treat food! They consider it part of their role

Now 4 he ends up with gifts from everyone so way too much chocolate, but he is only allowed to eat a small amount and not everyday. He is ok with that as doesn't usually get chocolate anyway and find it sickly sweet.

This was ds3 first chocolate. He stole it from the shelf at target. This was when i first noticed. He was a few weeks shy of 2. Cheeky little bugger.
