This is how the McConaugheys feed their children

Brazilian model Camila Alves McConaughey struggled with nutrition as a child. In an interview, she explains how she teaches her children how to deal with sweets. It becomes clear that the roles have sometimes been reversed and the little ones give mom a tip.

Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves McConaughey have children with healthy eating habits. The Brazilian model revealed how she taught her offspring “E! News”. In her new children’s book Just Try One Bite, the 40-year-old shows the McConaughey’s diet.

Even if the parents have not always been a good role model for 13-year-old Levi, 12-year-old Vida and their little brother, nine-year-old Livingston. The three would have caught their mother stealing chocolate from its hiding place on a high shelf in the pantry.

When it came to healthy eating, Camila Alves McConaughey was initially inspired by her children. “They encouraged me to keep going and find better versions, so my choice now is vegan chocolate.” And aside from that cute tongue-in-cheek episode, how does parenting work the other way around?

Matthew and Camila, brought up very differently

“If the kids want something that’s not good for them, I say, ‘Hey, I’m not going to tell you not to have it. But look at the list of ingredients.'” Less nutrient-dense foods are also not prohibited . You just want your kids to know what’s inside. Nevertheless, the mother of three herself says: “We are in no way perfect.” Your children are allowed to have an ice cream once in a while, just not every day.

Her Texas husband, now 52-year-old Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey, was taught at an early age to enjoy sweets in moderation. There were no limits set for the model in childhood. That’s why she’s struggling with sugar today. She is certain: “If we start this early, then we are most likely preparing our children for lifelong good habits.”
