Alicia Silverstone says her son’s healthy vegan diet has had a positive impact on his behavior.

The actor and animal advocate, who shares her son Bear with ex-husband Christopher Jarecki, made the comments during an interview with Us Weekly.

According to Silverstone, 9-year-old Bear, who has been vegan since birth, is a calm child who doesn’t require his mother to ‘yell or scream or discipline’.

‘Centering, grounding energy’

“I can tell you that from the get-go, I think of him as a brown rice baby because I ate brown rice when he was conceived, when he was in my belly and when he was on my boob, and now he eats brown rice,” Silverstone said.

“The centering, grounding energy of that nourishment in his organs has left him such a calm boy. I don’t have to yell or scream or discipline. None of that is necessary. All I have to do is say, ‘oh, Bear, no thank you,” and he goes, ‘OK, mom’. He’s got it.

“We just can talk like that because he’s not feeling crazy. When [kids] feel bad, when they eat unhealthy food and they don’t feel good, then they don’t act good. Same as us.”

Diet and behavior

This is not the first time Silverstone has shared her thoughts on diet and behavior.

Last year, the actor spoke to Us Weekly about her relationship with eight-year-old son, Bear.

She said: “I’ve never had to raise my voice to Bear. 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.”
