Gwyneth Paltrow says while food is important to health and she tries to avoid food that’s full of chemicals and pesticides. She is realistic and allows her children to eat whatever they want. “You can’t tell them “no Coke, no cake”. It is not realistic.”
Gwyneth is a mum of two, Apple, 11, and Moses, nine, from her marriage to Coldplay star Chris Martin.
“I don’t believe you should rule out any kind of food. I believe in enjoying life,” Paltrow, 43, told You magazine while promoting her new cookbook, It’s All Easy: Delicious Weekday Recipes for the Super-Busy Home Cook. “I’m not a good dieter and since I’ve had kids, I have loosened up a lot.
“My favourite ‘bad food’?” she continued. “French fries. I would eat them at every meal if I could.”
“You can’t tell them, ‘No Coke, no cake.’ It is not realistic,” Paltrow said. “Their favourite foods are pasta and french fries. It’s about trying to augment that with something healthy.”
‘Food means everything to me. When you walk into a kitchen and smell something simmering on the stove, you get a sense of home,’ says the actress.
‘Food creates a feeling of togetherness and nourishment.’
She has previously spoken about her preference for organic foods and for avoiding processed foods and foods with “tons” of chemicals and pesticides – but said there was “a lot of misinformation about what I actually eat.”
“I really don’t have any rules,” she said.
“Apple is always experimenting,” She told You. “A lot of her recipes revolve around pizza.”
“This weekend she hollowed out a loaf of bread, put in pizza ingredients and baked it.”
I was quite surprised to read this I must say.
