Gisele Bundchen shockingly got rid of ALL of her kids’ Halloween candy — but not for the reason you may think! While Gisele & her husband Tom Brady are known for running a super healthy household, it was actually her little ones’ idea to give away their goodies! Find out their heartwarming rationale here.
Jimmy Kimmel, 48, has a famous bit where, every year he has parents tell their kids that they ate all their Halloween candy! And while Gisele Bundchen, 36, didn’t EAT her two kids: Benjamin, 6, and Vivian Brady‘s, 3, loot from Halloween night, she did give it all away — but it was actually at their request!
“We don’t really have that kind of sugar in our house,” Gisele revealed to People magazine. “I let them try one [piece], but they really only had one bite and then they didn’t want it anymore. So I told them if they didn’t like it, I was going to give it away to other kids, and they actually let me give their candy away.” How charitable!
Gisele continued, “I said to them, ‘You know, there are so many kids that don’t get candy and you guys got so many, some kids don’t even get one! And they’re like, ‘Oh mom, OK, you can give it to them if they don’t get any.'” Looks like the two youngsters didn’t need too much convincing! After all, their mom, and dad Tom Brady, 39, are super strict about not only their own diets, but also their kids!
However, that’s not to say Benjamin and Vivian don’t get to indulge too — they just enjoy treats such as avocado ice cream as opposed to Dairy Queen. For example, according to their chef, Alan Campbell, the Brady fam does not eat: white sugar, white flour, MSG, iodized salt, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplants — just to name a FEW forbidden ingredients.
So what DO they eat? “Eighty percent … vegetables … and whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans,” Alan has said. “The other 20 percent is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken.” No room for candy there! But we love how Benjamin and Vivian decided to put their treats to good use and give them to children who wanted it more!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you love the reason Gisele gave away all of her kids’ candy? Pretty honorable, right?
