Your Baby's First Easter

With the first Easter for many babies, chocolate is out of the question as they are too young to enjoy this treat. Often parents are determined to limit the number of candies for young children and opt for other expressions of love. “In general, the AAP ( American Academy of Pediatrics) recommends skipping chocolate until kids are at least two, since it contains added sugar,” as reported by the VeryWellFamily webiste.
