Our bubs are around the same age and we aren't planning any chocolate either!
I bought some of those plastic coloured eggs and I'm going to put bits of dried fruit etc inside instead

Around 18mths her first easter egg. I didnt start and egg hunt until she was 5
Nothing wrong with letting your child wait for chocolate and nothing wrong with letting them have a little bit at easter. Every family is different

I try not to make a big deal over junk foods but have always shared whatever I'm having with ds. I'm not really concerned with chocolate and cake etc which we might have once a week/fortnight.
I worry more about getting the right balance day to day and ds having enough vegies everyday. He tends to have a lot of bread etc but there's not much I can do about it. Carby foods are the first things nan and dh go for when getting food for ds!

For Easter? Not until my oldest realised that kids get chocolate at Easter...so 6 or 7. They always got pj's, slippers and a book which they were so happy with. We only started because my oldest made the connection, but then it was just a small Lindt bunny and a very small hunt.
Chocolate in general...probably 3 or 4? I never saw a need to introduce them to chocolate. I'm fine with small amounts in moderation...just nevet saw the point in giving my kids food that they didn't know they were missing out on

My DD is turning 19 months in a few days & there'll be no chocolate for her either (or ice cream etc) until she's 4/5 yrs old.
My Dad & sisters joke about how mean I am but I told them from the get go her Dad & I's feelings regarding this & that we expected them to respect our parenting decisions which they do.

I can clearly remember DD2 trying to feed DD3 apple pie and icecream the day I bought her home from hospital.
In answer to the question, they would have all had a slice of their birthday cake on their first birthday, possibly decorated with smarties or chocolate freckles.
#1 - much to my horror exdh gave him junk food well before age 1. Easter bunny wouldn't have come until he was around 3.
#2 - I can remember camping in early December and waking up and finding her very proud of herself, sitting on the floor of the tent covered in the chocolate she had managed to rip out of #1's advent calendar. She would have been around 18 months. Easter bunny wouldn't have come until she was around 2.
The others, can't really remember. With older siblings around it wasn't really my choice. Easter bunny wouldn't have given them anything until around age 2.
