My 20mth old daughter has never had any type of candy. I am now getting "that's mean" "you're not being fair to her" and several other things from a family member. I let my first two children have candy from a young age and now they always want it. So I'm trying to prevent that. Is there something wrong with withholding sugar? At what age is ideal to start introducing sugar that isn't natural?

I totally agree that no one should give another person's child things like candy or soft drinks without asking the parent.
I completely agree with you Marcy, on that number. I would have been infuriated by the thoughtless actions of that neighbor. Once that Pandora's Box is open there is no going back to the innocence of not tasting it.
I agree it was stupid with the first two but that's what happens when you're young and have (at the time) an overbearing MIL who liked to give them suckers. I learned my lesson just wanted other's opinion to show my aunt.
Don't beat yourself up about first 2-they're always the Guinea pigs anyway Being young doesn't = being stupid MIL's who do what they want show no respect. Aunts who don't respect don't need to be shown proof. Good luck.
Absolutely correct. I didn't even add the whole dental thing to my reply. :)

Fpherj48, you are very right. Fat people push this stuff on others. Why do they feel the need? So everyone can rise to their weight making them feel better about themselves?
You are a smart lady. Not tasting candy and having naturally sweet foods seems to be so rare these days with all the sugar in processed, fast food, and restaurant meals.
