The actress finally spoke out about chewing her toddler’s food — find out what she had to say!

Alicia Silverstone stands by pre-chewing food for her son Bear Blu, 11 months. The reason? It makes her laugh, The Daily Mail reports. The actress defended her mouth-to-mouth feeding on April 7 at the Brooklyn Academy of Art and Music in New York after she was questioned about the situation.

“People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years,” the 35-year-old mother contends. “It’s a weaning process. Honestly, when I posted the video I was not thinking, so maybe I was like Cher!”

Alicia also accepts that it could be dangerous and unhealthy!  “Any time there’s mouth-to-mouth contact between a mother and their baby it’s going to pass bacteria and possibly viruses,” Dr. Aaron M. Soeprono, DDS at Meridian Denta, told HollywoodLife exclusively. “I would advise against it.”

Alicia adds: “I wasn’t saying this was anything somebody should do. I wasn’t trying to be independent or cause such a ruckus. I’m very glad that I did it.”

The media firestorm didn’t faze Alicia, but it should!
