That is NASTY!!! There are reports from the ADA (I think) that it's really bad to get an adults saliva into a baby's mouth because it increases the risk of cavities and other oral problems.

Yes, our pediatric dentist confirms.

That is how TB and other diseases are spread.

I don't suppose she asked anyone in the medical profession about this before she decided it was a good idea.

Of course, thousands of dimwits will now follow suit, just because she's a celebrity (who I have never heard of, BTW)

I don't think Alicia Silverstone or her kid are considered high risk for TB but I just read an article that TB is on the rise, and even scarier, multi-drug resistant TB.

I was wondering if anyone here had seen that story. Bleech!

I never realized that Alicia Silverstone was bats**t crazy before. She's definitely not playing with a full deck.

I suppose there are much worse things to do a child.



"I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon," she wrote on her lifestyle blog.


I doubt if I would feed myself this, let alone a toddler. Nori and Grated daikon probably won't blend well, hence the chewing perhaps.

I suppose there are much worse things to do a child. Sure, there's abuse, neglect, etc. Although some dentists would not look kindly on the unnecessary and completely avoidable exposure of the kid to the cavity-causing bacteria.

Hence the chewing? I thought Clueless was a successful enough movie for her to afford a blender.

A year of being a parent has taught me to not judge others parenting, as long as the provide food, clothing and shelter for their kids (and are not abusive). What work for different families is different. Ah, maat has reached that elusive parenting zen moment :cool:

Given modern conveniences (like a potato masher) I would guess this serves as some sort of bonding activity that only has psychological impact for the parent.

My 2 year old ate some nori and rice the other day. We had to watch him with the nori, but he chewed it up really well. He loves mochi too. I don't think he'd eat daikon though. I definitely did not pre-chew any of his food.

Poor kid, it's a chew or die World, and he/she's at a disadvantage.

I vaugely recall some hippy/backwoods relative doing the same thing. Seems nasty. I wouldn't want to share a meal with someone spitting mush in some unfortunate baby's mouth.

So what is the rationale for this (assuming there is rationale)?
