Gwyneth Paltrow under fire for inflicting her well documented food issues on her children.
She has tried the macrobiotic diet, the kale and lemon cleanse and only eating salad for days on end.
Now Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, has revealed that that she avoids feeding pasta, bread or rice to her children Apple, eight, and Moses, six, because it is bad for them.
Her decision was based on the fact that everyone in her house - including husband Chris Martin - is apparently intolerant of gluten, dairy and chicken’s eggs.
Miss Paltrow’s comments are an admission that her habit of going for the latest fad diet is filtering down to how she behaves as a mother.
She has in the past told how she snacks on almonds when she is hungry rather than cave in and have a proper meal.
She spent her 20s on the macrobiotic diet during which time she ate mostly vegetables and beans and chewed her food more thoroughly than usual.
In her new cookbook, called ‘It’s All Good,’ which is released next month, Miss Paltrow devotes an entire chapter to grains but is deeply sceptical about them.
She writes: ‘Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across . . . seems to concur that (gluten) is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it.
‘Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs’.
Miss Paltrow, who won an Oscar in 1999 for Shakespeare in Love, added that Mr Martin, 36, the singer with the band Coldplay, and their children are all intolerant to ‘many other surprising foods’ - but her claim was met with scepticism by experts.
London-based public health nutritionist Yvonne Wake said Miss Paltrow was being ‘foolish’ and that she could be doing her children harm.
She said: ‘I think it’s not a good idea, especially because her children are are thin - I’ve seen pictures of them. ‘Kids need carbohydrate because it gives them glycogen which keeps your brain going.
‘Without it they won’t be able to think straight as their brain won’t be functioning and their thinking patterns will be slow.Jacked from The Daily Mail
