Los Angeles, April 1 (IANS) Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says she allows her children to eat cookies and candy when they go out.
Otherwise the actress makes sure her two children - son Moses and daughter, Apple - eat nutritious food at home.
"I tried to start them off with all of the right foods, but as they got older, the lure of Oreos and cotton candy outweighed the lure of carrots with hummus. And that's all a part of childhood and I love Oreos too, so I completely understand," showbizspy.com quoted Paltrow as saying.
"I try to make sure that what is on their plate at home is nutritious and tasty, and then I loosen way up on the reigns when we are out.
"My daughter gravitates toward fresh fruit and raw nuts, but will inhale a bag of hot Cheetos at the airport. It's all about balance," added Paltrow, who is married to Chris Martin.
