Ashton Kutcher ‘isn’t ready’ for his daughter to have candy. The 38-year-old actor welcomed baby Wyatt with wife Mila Kunis in October 2014. Now she’s approaching two, Wyatt is starting to show an interest in getting her hands on sweet treats but Ashton is nervous about whether she’ll get hyped up if she has sugar.

‘Sugar is there in our house but we just don’t give it to her,’ he said during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night. ‘And it’s not on the level where she can get it. I’m not ready for that. I was eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch (cereal) this morning and she was trying to hijack it because she got the flavour. And once they get the flavour they can’t un-get the flavour. And I’m trying to negotiate with her but it was like a Republican debate. We couldn’t get on the same page!’

Ashton acknowledges it was difficult to keep Wyatt candy-free over the Easter weekend, but he and Mila introduced some alternative delicacies in place of chocolate and sweets. They made a game of it, and the actor admits his daughter absolutely loved it.

‘We did like the little plastic eggs but we didn’t want to put candy in it - she’s one and a half so she’s not quite ready for candy,’ he laughed. ‘We’re not ready for her to be ready for candy. So we did Cheerios and raisins and she loved the raisins. She was going ape for the raisins! She hacked it because they were all in different colours and the orange ones had raisins and she went straight for raisins.’

Another debate Ashton and Mila struggled with over Easter was whether or not to explain the concept of the Easter Bunny to their little girl.

‘We actually were debating whether we were going to tell her that a bunny was laying eggs, because that’s a little confusing for a kid,’ he continued. ‘So we had a legit conversation about whether we are going to go down that path. Like we think we’re going Santa Claus, but we don’t know about the bunny. It’s tough - it’s all really confusing!’ Despite the difficulties of being a father, Ashton described parenthood as ‘the best thing I’ve ever done’.
