Quantcast Vegetarian StarAlicia Silverstone Says Children Appreciate A Vegan “Kind Mama”

Alicia Silverstone "The Kind Mama"

Alicia Silverstone has always lent her voice to events that promote healthy living and she’ll be hosting the Seed Food and Wine Festival’s Vedge dinner with Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby Friday, October 17 at the Tongue & Cheek in South Beach.

The actress spoke with Miami New Times about her latest book, The Kind Mama, and some of the misconceptions people may have about raising vegan children.

“I think it’s usually about whether you and your child can get all the nutrients you need from this way of eating,” Silverstone said. “The reality is, not only will you be getting all the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals you need from kind foods, but you’ll most likely even get higher doses than your animal-eating friends. In my book The Kind Mama, I include a handy chart that details exactly how these kind foods provide you with all the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals you need.”

Silverstone’s test subject for the vegan diet, her toddler son named Bear, is proof that not only are vegan children healthy, they enjoy what mom and dad put on the plate.

“He has never asked for meat or dairy. He is proud of being vegan,” she said.

Bear enjoys foods like sushi with brown rice, nut butters, avocado and tofu. One of his favorite recipes from The Kinda Mama is kinpira stew.
