The “Clueless” actress who is known for her healthy, vegan cooking and animal rights activism, posted a video on her website Tuesday that shows her feeding her child. The clip has gone viral.
The video shows her feeding her child Bear Blu like he’s a baby bird. She chews her food and then puts the morsels into his mouth directly from her mouth.
Many people might find this odd, but think of this: Many parents will bite off pieces of food and place it into their kids’ mouths so they won’t choke. The only real difference is that Alicia uses her mouth—not her hand—to put the food in.
Now, critics claim that swapping food from mouth to mouth can put kids at risk of getting ill, as germs are directly passed from mommy to baby. There is also an increased chance of tooth decay from this practice.
What do you think? Does this video gross you out or is it what most moms do for their kids, anyway? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments section below!
