Alicia Silverstone feeds her child with pre-masticated food

My link

Alicia SilverstoneAlicia Silverstone, famous American actress, author, and former fashion model, is in the headlines for some unhygienic practices. As much as it comes across as a surprise for all the fans and followers, it’s true as well.

The "Clueless" actress posted a video that shows her feeding her child on her website Tuesday. Fortunately or unfortunately, this video clip has gone viral and people have gone berserk over it. Plenty of comments, mostly negative, are being hurled at Alicia Silverstone.

The video shows Alicia Silverstone feeding her child Bear Blu like he's a baby bird. She chews of his food and then deposits the masticated morsels in his mouth. The fact that she’s feeding her son food that was chewed by herself is quite disgusting to hear and even more gross to look at.

Even though the idea of eating pre-masticated food sounds quite displeasing, people in the olden times used to feed their children with such a diet. People generally used to use pre-masticated food to transition children from mother's milk to solids. Even if she chewed the food prior to feeding her 11-month son, she shouldn’t have posted the video of the act.

There is sufficient evidence of the benefits behind pre-mastication. According to the journal Maternal & Child Nutrition, the practice helps boost a child's immunity. "Its abandonment, particularly in poor communities, has placed children at increased risk of inadequate nutrition and decreased ability to confront infections.”

There are a few schools of thought that still defy such practices. Such people are quite openly criticizing Silverstone, calling the practice dangerous. Swapping food from mouth to mouth puts kids at risk of catching a cold and can contribute to tooth decay or worse.

"Word is Alicia Silverstone chews her food for her child. Don't follow in her footsteps," Delta Dental of Iowa tweeted this morning. "You can pass dental disease!"

"Bacteria are passed when items contaminated with saliva go into a child's mouth," the insurance company warned in a recent press release. "Most parents don’t know they can pass harmful bacteria from their mouth to their baby’s mouth, which can put their child at an increased risk for cavities."

The oral flora between a mother and child is the same, especially at that age. It is a bit odd but not unhygienic. Mind you, if the mother has various diseases it can be a problem but overall that's a very specific example and residual immunity from the mother will attach to a certain extent. It's not like she's exchanging si, man.

Actually, it CAN pass on bacteria that is unpleasant at best. Dental cavities, yes. H pylori, yes. Any new diseases that mom gets, yes. Immunity is passed on very well through breast milk.

Back in the old days, you might have had less than 30 people in your entire village to share bacteria and viruses with during the majority of your life. I seriously doubt that this can be declared the same for Ms Silverstone and her child or almost everybody in the western world. (Another good reason to practice regular handwashing. I hear regularly how people believe that more exposure is better so they NEVER wash except when showering. Again, exposure is not the problem--way, way, way over exposure is. Don't want an infection in your cut/eye/mouth? Don't put it there. Assume that every doorknob that you touch was touched by 30 other people who were all picking their butts right before opening that door. Assume that every mouth you kiss has lips that shared slobbers with as many people as yours have. )

New diseases for sure, but it is a bit odd to regurgitate food into your child's mouth. I am cognizant of handwashing protocols and I agree.

Agree it is a bit odd, but not horrible. I sometimes would chew my food some and then give my babies it, when they were just starting on solids. Now, I'd take some between my fingers and pass it to them that way, but it is not that different. And I think most parents would share utensils with their kids, or bite a grape in half to give to their toddler, so saliva is often swapped.

But that is normal for penguins.
