DS is 19 months, and has received 7 Easter eggs.

Most of them are fairly small, but 2 of them are very large. Bigger than DS's head.

WIBU for DH & I to take the big ones and eat them ourselves?

I'm working my way steadily through DS1's stash of eggs. He's 2.5 and is very much aware of chocolate, but once they were in the cupboard he conveniently forgot about them grin

So much for my diet though sad

That Christmas thread has me breaking out in a cold sweat every time I eat some of the dc's chocolate, sweets or cake. They get very little of the food they come home with from parties/christmas and easter blush.

I have just eaten an entire Kinder bunny and I can't even find it in me to feel bad coz gawd I lurve the kinder choc. <not guilty>

Don't donate them, don't melt them down, don't pass them onto anyone. Eat them all yourselves and thoroughly enjoy doing so!

and 4lb would look much more on the short stature of an 18 monther who ate them all. you're doing him a favour. yes.

YADNBU! But beware - I put on about 4lbs in spring 2010. My DCs were 18 mths and 3 yo, so far too young for the 50m Easter eggs they received, and I got through at least half an Easter egg per day for 3 weeks blush.

Stealing? Really?????

hermioneweasley Mon 01-Apr-13 22:41:34

There was a thread at Christmas about eating the kids' chocolate. Some posters saying it was stealing from your children.

I disagree. Eat them!

NaturalBaby Mon 01-Apr-13 22:38:23

Please tell me that people do not throw away perfectly edible chocolate easter eggs because they have too many?!?!

McNewPants2013 Mon 01-Apr-13 22:32:47

melt some down and use them to decorate cakes.

WafflyVersatile Mon 01-Apr-13 22:32:35

Help him eat them! It's the christian thing to do. smile

Make a game out of it. Pass the egg. pass the egg to and fro and when the music stops whoever is holding the egg gets a bite. This way he will know it is all fair and square. wink

Unless he's less gullible than I was when my 5yr old DN made me play this with my egg. angry

Well, as it stands, DS hasn't eaten any of his eggs yet.

He seems to think that they are very funny, shiny, oddly shaped balls. So far none of the foil has come off, so he seems to be unaware that they're actually chocolate inside grin

Dh & I have not been able to bring ourselves to enlighten DS on this yet, as he's been having so much fun using them as balls so far.

StuntGirl - don't worry, they won't get binned. DH & I are prepared to sacrifice ourselves and eat them all if necessary. Or possibly share them with our work colleagues.

Yanbu. My lovely inlaws have bought the dc eggs, inc for the nearly one year olds.

They won't miss them. Maybe buy them a book instead as that's what we shall do.

themindwonders Sat 30-Mar-13 19:40:58

i mean and refused to buy my dc any due to family buying them millions - and i of course will help them eat those ones as well smile it law

AuntieStella Sat 30-Mar-13 19:29:11

Have you seen the Egg Armageddon thread and the other one in chat abou the Great Egg Shortage of 2013?

You could sell these on for a fortune!

DeskPlanner Sat 30-Mar-13 19:25:23

I'd say you were a terrible parent if you let him eat 7 eggs at that age. You have to eat them, its the only sensible decision.

wibblyjelly Sat 30-Mar-13 18:23:05

I've been assured by other MNetters that it is the law to eat dc's easter eggs if they are too young to understand smile . I'm assuming its going to be the same the with Christmas selection boxes.....

Squitten Sat 30-Mar-13 14:47:16

YANBU!

My family always buy our kids obscene amounts of chocolate at Easter. DH isn't a massive sweet tooth and has to eat all the yukky dark chocolate anyway so unfortunately, the regretful task of preserving my children's healthy eating habits falls to me. And I'm pregnant so must ensure I get all my calories you know...

SO far I've eaten and replaced DD's Easter bunny about three times. DON'T REPLACE.

pigletmania Sat 30-Mar-13 14:42:16

No why bin choccy what a waste, just eat it bit at a time, or save for another day

StuntGirl Sat 30-Mar-13 13:15:39

Could you donate any? I'm sure there would be charities/shelters/something that would gratefully take them? Surely a better option than binning them.

PurpleStorm Sat 30-Mar-13 13:14:32

We'll crack them open tomorrow with a clean conscience then grin

Meglet Sat 30-Mar-13 13:13:28

Should have really said YANBU.

zwischenzug Sat 30-Mar-13 13:12:25

Of course not, it would be unreasonable to make him eat all that unhealthy shit. Annoys me when my daughters grandparents keep buying her stacks of chocolate for xmas/easter, she gets given a tiny fraction of it, me and OH might eat some and the rest goes in the bin. Total waste really.

Meglet Sat 30-Mar-13 13:11:09

Yes. I ate pretty much every egg mine recieved at that age. No way were they getting through that much chocolate, even out over a few weeks shock.

I'll still eat a bit of the eggs these days, and they're 6 & 4 now.
