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 (28Mar16). "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.

Fake rings and false social media locations were just some of the tricks Kutcher and Kunis resorted to in order to keep their wedding day a secret.
Perfect example – back in March last year, Kunis appeared on James Corden’s ‘The Late Late Show’ and told the presenter, coyly, that she and her former ‘That ‘70s Show’ co-star Kutcher had gotten hitched. However, it was then reported that the couple had tied the knot on the July 4th weekend, with Kunis sporting a fake ring on TV to throw off the scent.
Kutcher appeared on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Wednesday (March 2nd) to provide some more details about the various ploys they used in order to try to ensure privacy on their big day – including fake social media locations.
Ashton Kutcher's full-time job has become making sure his daughter Wyatt doesn't "kill herself".
The 38-year-old actor is father to 17-month-old Wyatt with wife Mila Kunis. Being a parent has priority over from Ashton's acting work, as he spends much of his time with his little girl, trying to stop her from hurting herself.
"She's actually crossed that threshold," he said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (02Mar16). "That first year, you spend just trying to keep them alive. And then after that, you actually hit a point where your job is to keep them from killing themselves," laughed Ashton.
"She tries to kill herself on a regular basis. Like, she doesn't realise that's a cliff and that could be dangerous. She'll just jump off the thing. She don't know yet. You'd think that they would come with instincts around fire and large falls, and they don't", the Jobs actor explained.
