Jessica Alba’s children go crazy when they have too much sugar but she lets them have a treat occasionally.
The ‘Machete’ actress tries to make sure her daughters, Honor, four, and Haven, 19 months, have as healthy a diet as possible but allows them a treat every now and them.
She said: “I try to give my kids whole foods and grains as much as humanly possible. They’re little spazzes when they have too much refined sugar. But everything in moderation.”
While Jessica – who is married to Cash Warren – tries to protect her children from chemicals, she does think some parents go too far.
She told People magazine: “I have friends who won’t give their kids plastic toys, I’m like, ‘You know what? I’m OK with Honor having Barbies.’ “
Jessica has previously admitted having children made her less critical of herself and even though she knows her body has changed a lot since she became a mother, she doesn’t care because her priorities have changed.
She explained: “I don’t really care about my body image anymore because it just doesn’t matter now that I have children. Instead, I focus on my health, feeling strong, and making sure I’m up and running so I can spend that all-important time with the girls.
“Becoming a mom has definitely made me feel more confident and secure than I ever did in my 20s. Even though I can’t ever get down to my pre-baby weight before having Honor, my jeans don’t zip up the same way, and things just hang differently, I feel completely comfortable in my skin and my idea of perfection has changed.”
