Alicia Silverstone Explains Why She Doesn’t Let Her 12-Year-Old Son Eat Meat

9 months ago

There have been multiple cases around the world of children being hospitalized as a result of a vegan diet. Keeping your kids on a strict plant-based diet without providing any additional supplements might affect their health, but if the diet is carefully balanced, it may benefit their overall wellbeing. Alicia Silverstone firmly believes that her 12-year-old son Bear is a testament to excellent health due to his vegan diet.

She shows her son a good example.

The Clueless actress and her son Bear both follow a vegan diet, and Silverstone strives to lead by example by offering him a wide range of plant-based food choices. She reveals that Bear’s favorite food is kale, and he has a strong fondness for oat milk.

“When my son took the first sip, his little eyeballs popped. He just loves it. It’s so creamy and so delicious. We make smoothies with it. He would drink it out of the carton if he could,” she said.

She says her son is healthy thanks to his diet.

Silverstone strongly believes that following a vegan diet keeps her son healthy. “He’s such an example of health. This is a child who is plant-based,” she shared.

“He’s just so healthy. I just want to share that with the world. So people can see that a plant-based baby is really healthy,” she added.

She believes that you have to be conscious of what you eat.

The actress believes it’s crucial to be mindful of the products we consume. She expresses concerns about everyday supermarket food potentially containing harmful ingredients. “Our food is being hijacked, and they’re telling you lies about what your food is. It’s just constant lies so that you’ll make choices that go against your nature,” she said.

She admitted she struggled in the beginning.

Adjusting to a plant-based diet can be initially challenging, and Silverstone reveals that it took her some time to fully transition away from eating meat. “I was greedy and really liked it. But one day I said, ‘I’m not going to do this anymore,’ so I got myself an education,” she shared.

The actress believes that being vegan benefits her beauty and overall health. “My skin got cleaned up, and I lost a lot of weight,” she said.

Alicia Silverstone stirred up online discussions when she revealed that she still shares a bed with her son. As a devoted mother, she strongly believes in keeping her children close.

I hope to the heavens that when he's older and should chose to eat meat, his mother doesn't act out about it and realise it will be his choice.
