Celebrity Feeding Trends


There are several trends that celebrity parents are following when it comes to feeding their children. We as everyday parents can follow these healthy trends as well. I was happy to discover that the latest healthy feeding trends aren’t from expensive boutiques, but from my local grocery store.

The Organic Trend

Celebrity parents, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner, and Gweneth Paltrow, all feed their children organically. Some favorite brands include Crofter’s Organic Fruit Spread and Earth’s Best baby food. Crofter’s is not only organic, but it’s low enough in sugar that I can give it to Allison, my 4 yr old Type 1 Diabetic, and not stress over it (8g of carbs per serving). Earth’s Best has been widely known in mom blog circles as being the organic food with no added salt, starches or refined sugars.

The Gluten Free Trend

Elisabeth Hasselback, of The View, is one of the many celebrity parents embracing the gluten free feeding trend. Envirokidz Bars are an organic, crispy rice bar. It has a kids pleasing taste and is found in most grocery stores. Tinkada Pasta is made with rice and bran. It comes in 18 varieties. Recipes can be found in their website.

The Sugar Free Trend

Madonna is known for strictly following a sugar free diet while raising her daughter, Lourdes. One favorite is Hint Water. It’s a premium essence water with a hint of flavor. It’s unsweetened and has zero calories. Hint comes in 10 delicious flavors. Also, although not sugar free… Funky Monkey Fruit Snacks have no added sugar. It’s freeze dried fruit that’s not just better for you… it’s good for you. Funky Monkey is also gluten free.

The Chemical Free Trend

Celebrities like Melissa Joan Hart (pictured), Jessica Alba, and Tori Spelling all follow this trend. Born Free makes bottles and cups all BPA chemical free. They come in glass and plastic. Their unique design also cuts back on colic and ear infections.

    Awesome info Kelly! I thought I would add a little fruit snack I love and so do my kiddos. http://www.stretchislandfruit.com/
    I get the fruit leathers at Costco.

    Great info!
    But I would like to note, Elizabeth Hasselback in not embracing a 'trend'…she HAS to eat Gluten Free.
    For Celiac's (Gluten Intolerant), eating this way is not something we choose…rather something we have to do if we want to not destroy our insides or even worse die!
    I know there are people who do it because it is trendy, but I know she (as well as myself) do not do it by choice.
    Thanks:)

    Thank you so much for that clarification! I have a close friend who's child has Celiac. I never meant to imply it was a trend, for those like that, by any means. xo
