Alicia Silverstone Bites Back Against Pre-Chewing Food Critics

Alicia Silverstone defends her decision to feed her son Bear straight from her mouth after a slew of criticism was unleashed against the actress. Silverstone, known for her lead role in ‘Clueless’ posted a video to her blog several months ago and played out a scene of feeding her son mochi and veggies mouth to mouth.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight this past Friday, Alicia stated,

“I can understand that it would make some people feel uncomfortable, possibly, because it’s new to them. But I do want to let you know that this has been going on for thousands of years, still going on all over the place and it’s natural.”

The U.S. government-controlled health organizations discourages mouth-to-mouth feeding to eliminate the risk of passing diseases. Silverstone explains,

“It’s a part of the weaning process, so while I’m still breast-feeding it’s just a way to introduce him to food when he doesn’t have teeth and things like that and he can’t chew.”

Quite frankly there are far worst things health organizations should be concerned about.
