Gwyneth Paltrow's Kids Eat Oreos And Cheetos, Not Only Nuts And Berries

Worry not, world. Gwyneth Paltrow's kids are not starving.

As her second cookbook, "It's All Good," came out this month, Paltrow revealed the diet she put herself, her husband Chris Martin and kids Apple and Moses on. As part of this "elimination diet," the family has given up dairy, sugar, gluten and soy, and Gwyneth's book is an amalgamation of healthy recipes that utilize everything but these ingredients.

For whatever reason, people thought it appropriate to assume the roles of educators, and discussions worldwide broke out over exactly how good or bad a mother Paltrow is for withholding carbs from her kids.

Apparently, the Oscar-winning 40-year-old got wind of the conversation, and touched on it in her latest Goop newsletter.

Talking about her kids' nutrition, Gwyneth said, "I tried to start them off with all of the right foods but as they got older, the lure of Oreos and cotton candy outweighed the lure of carrots with hummus. And that's all a part of childhood and I love Oreos too, so I completely understand."

"I try to make sure that what is on their plate at home is nutritious and tasty and then I loosen way up on the reins when we are out," she added. "They love a brown rice stir-fry but they also love their 'Coke of the week.' My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts but will inhale a bag of hot Cheetos at the airport. It's all about balance."
