Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis plan to raise their daughter sugar-free

The new parents have firm rules. One of them is to keep 18-month-old Wyatt away from sugar so she won't grow up with an 'addiction'

New dad Ashton Kutcher has given fans a sneak peek into his and wife Mila Kunis’ parenting techniques, one of which is their firm rule that their daughter, Wyatt, would grow up without consuming anything with sugar.

The purpose? So she won’t develop a sugar addiction.

Last easter, instead of allowing her to taste chocolate, they gave her an artificial egg full of raisins.

He revealed in an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he and Mila are not planning on opening that “can of worms”, saying, “We didn’t want to put candy in her Easter basket because she’s one-and-a-half and she’s not quite ready. We’re not quite ready for her to be ready for candy, so we did Cheerios and raisins. She loved the raisins!”

In fact, Ashton’s questioning if they should even introduce the Easter Bunny to her at all.

He and Mila have had serious conversations about fictional childhood traditions.

“We actually were debating whether or not we were going to explain to her that a bunny was laying eggs. So, we had a legitimate conversation as to whether or not we’re going to go down that path,” he confessed.

But they’re pretty set on allowing Santa Claus into Wyatt’s life, that’s for sure. The Easter Bunny, however, is still up for debate.

“It’s tough because it’s like, ‘Why is a bunny laying eggs? Mommy, does a bunny lay eggs?’ … ‘No, but the Easter Bunny does.’” quipped Ashton.

We wonder if they’ll introducer her to the Tooth Fairy one day.
