Gisele Bundchen's Son Thinks Broccoli Is A Dessert!

Dinner time at Gisele’s house is certainly different! Did her son Benjamin at least get candy on Halloween?

Gisele Bundchen told British Vogue about the eating habits of her family, with a shocking revelation — she duped almost two-year-old son Benjamin into loving veggies! How did she do it?

“My children, they are like white canvases,” the 31-year-old model said, according to The Daily Mail. “When Benjamin eats broccoli, he thinks it’s dessert.”

Gisele’s made shocking comments on parenting before — she said every mother should be required to breastfeed and that childbirth “didn’t hurt in the slightest” — but the model doesn’t listen to her critics.

“People think if you look after yourself you’re being selfish, you know,” Gisele said. “But what Tom taught me — and he is a living example of this — is that in order to be your best, you have to honor your own needs first.”

Gisele said that she has to come first so that everyone can benefit. “If I honor my needs first, I will be the best wife, the best mum, the best sister, the best friend.”

HollyMoms, do YOU agree that people should look after themselves first? And is it really that easy to train your kids to like broccoli?

My daughter is almost 4 and loves broccoli. no biggie about that, i didn’t even trick her into eating it. she just loves it. i breastfed her for over 3 years. sometimes i forget about my needs and that’s when everything goes wrong. we really have to give ourselves time everyday, 5 minutes of me-time every morning isn’t bad. it helps you feel better when you love your self. that way there will be more love to go around.

by the way, i believe in the ‘honor your own needs’ thing- unfortunately, there isn’t enough time in the day to take care of both my needs and my daughter’s, and hers come first. good for gisele if her lifestyle allows for her to take care of herself. i don’t think she’s selfish for that, but she just doesn’t seem to get how the rest of the world operates either b/c she’s self-absorbed, or just has never seen anything other than the privileged lifestyle.

my daughter loved broccoli at that age, too. she hates it now, two years later. i’m trying not to hate this woman, but her arrogance is annoying to say the least. maybe it’s just her english, but she really comes across as a know it all making these grandiose statements as if her experience is the only way it ever is in the world- and, i’m sorry, a new mom of a 2 year old just doesn’t know it all. regarding this broccoli thing, most of the literature will tell you that some kids are fussier than others— we ate everything in front of us when we were little, but my cousin hated everything. there was nothing different in how we were parented vis a vis food, and my mom wasn’t a better mom than our aunt. kids are unique in many different ways… maybe tom’s children will be good eaters b/c they come from tall/big stock and need lots of food to grow, not because she’s making a stupid painting on her canvas! she just really rubs me the wrong way, and i am quite certain it’s not out of jealousy. maybe i’m kidding myself…
