About 2-5 years old

Sorry for the delay, however the date/time stamp is embedded into the image and the camera can only do that as the picture is taken so it is not possible to change it unless the date/time is changed before the picture is taken.
You can still remove the date/time stamp by editing the photo with image-editing software like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
