Does everyone feed their seedlings?

I've been starting seedlings indoors for about 4 years now and I've never fed anything. I just pot up when they start to outgrow their containers (and often I neglect that part as I run out of time/space).

Things always work out fine. Once they're in the ground everything sorts it's self out.

Is feeding really necessary? Would I get better harvest if I did a better job of looking after my seedlings?
I start feeding my seedlings when they have one set of true leaves but only at 1/2 the rate. I have found that this makes a much larger and a more mature plant come planting time. I start my tomato seeds Feb 15 and set them out April 1. They all have buds forming
