Does clean-living Gwyneth give her children carbs after all?

In 2013 Gwyneth Paltrow gave an interview that shocked the world when she seemed to say that she doesn’t feed her children carbs.

Or is that actually what she stated?

The Oscar-winning actress has now explained that she feels the interview was taken out of context:

“I’ve been misquoted a lot around food," she said. "The reason I wrote my last cookbook [It’s All Good] with no overt allergens in it was because of my son’s eczema.

"He should eat gluten-free, based on his allergy tests. I don’t know how that got construed to I don’t feed my kids carbs.”

Like every mum, Gwyneth claims she only wants what’s best for her kids, Apple, 11 and Moses, 9. And this includes their diet.

Gwyneth explained in the same interview with Women’s Health that it's important her kids eat as healthily as possible: “I try to have whole foods, organic when possible.

"And a lot of vegetables – my daughter is vegetarian, so a lot of our meals are plant-based.”

In 2011, the Iron Man star was serving lunch to guests in her London home when she fell ill. She initially feared she was having a stroke, though it later transpired that she had suffered the effects of a severe migraine and a panic attack.

As a result, Gwyneth, who 'consciously uncoupled' from hubby Chris Martin last year, discovered that she was anaemic and had a serious vitamin D deficiency. And the health scare prompted her to get her family tested for allergies; she has since adjusted their diets to suit their needs.

Sounds like a pretty great mum to us!
