Celebrity actor and animal-rights advocate, Alicia Silverstone, has credited her son’s good behavior to a plant-based diet

The Clueless star, who is vegan herself, spoke to Us Weekly about her relationship with eight-year-old son, Bear.

“I’ve never had to raise my voice to Bear,” Silverstone said. “I can just say ‘no, thank you’ and we respect each other and listen to each other.

“So much of that is because he’s not … a lot of it is the parenting, but a lot of it is the food. When your kid feels good, they act well.”

When asked whether Bear was a ‘fussy eater’ – Silverstone revealed he loves to eat kale. “I’m imagining that doesn’t count as a picky eater,” she added. “He eats kale pretty much almost every day. And he eats bok choy, and he eats cabbage and he has brown rice and quinoa.”

Animal-testing

Last month, Silverstone, who is vegan herself, attended the United Nation’s annual High-Level Political Forum last month to call on global decision-makers to end animal testing for cosmetics – partnering with animal protection agency Cruelty Free International.

“I’m delighted to come together with Cruelty Free International to add my voice to the millions already calling for a global end to cosmetics animal testing. I urge the decision-makers gathered here from across the world to play their part in ending the testing of cosmetics on animals globally and for good,” Silverstone said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.
