Ashton Kutcher put Cheerios and raisins in his daughter's Easter eggs

Ashton Kutcher has a sweet tooth, but he's doing his best not to pass it down to the next generation.

So when Easter rolled around last Sunday, he and wife Mila Kunis decided to skip the usual chocolate bunnies and candy-filled eggs for their daughter, Wyatt.

"We did the little plastic eggs, but we didn't want to put candy in it," he told Jimmy Kimmel Monday night. "She's 1-and-a-half, and she's not quite ready — we're not ready for her to be ready for candy. So we did Cheerios and raisins."

While cereal and dried fruit might not sound too exciting for those of us who know that jelly beans and Cadbury Crème Eggs exist, little Wyatt wasn't disappointed.

"She loved the raisins!" Kutcher explained. "She was going ape for the raisins. ... She hacked it, because they were all in different colors and the orange ones had the raisins. She just kept going right for the orange."

That's great, but don't expect dad to give up his own sugary snacks any time soon.

"This ain't about cutting things out for me," he said with a smile. "It's about raising a healthy child."

And he knows that "once you get the flavor, you don't unget the flavor" for sweet treats.
