Alicia Silverstone’s son Bear, 9, has NEVER needed ‘medical intervention’ or ‘antibiotics’

Alicia Silverstone has received criticism over the years for choosing to raise her son Bear Blu on a strictly plant-based diet.

But the Clueless star, 44, recently revealed that her son is ‘such an example of health’ that he has ‘never’ needed ‘medical intervention’ in all his nine years.

‘This is a child who is plant based. To never have needed antibiotics in nine years and to never have needed any kind of medical intervention…’ said Silverstone in an interview with ET.

She continued: ‘Most kids have so many ear infections, they’re taking medicine all the time.’

Although Bear has ‘never needed antibiotics,’ Alicia clarified that she is ‘not saying [she] wouldn’t give it to him’ if he needed them, but, as of now, ‘he doesn’t need it.’ 

‘This is a kid who’s been [sick] twice in his life. Twice. For, like, a few hours,’ she claimed.

‘He said, “Mommy I don’t feel good. I’m going to lay down.” In his whole life, twice. He can get a snot nose, but he’s still climbing trees.’

Alicia really wanted people to understand that her son is a great example of the benefits of a ‘plant-based’ diet and that it is not a diet deprived of essential nutrients. 

‘[Bear] just so healthy. I just want to share that with the world. So people can see that a plant-based baby is really healthy… It’s not like they’re just doing OK. They can do better,’ explained the actress to ET’s Deidre Behar.

Alicia welcomed her only child in May of 2011 with ex husband and musician Christopher Jarecki, 44.

The former couple, whose relationship spans 20 years, were married from 2005 until their divorce in 2018.

Besides touting the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, Silverstone also opened up to ET about quarantining amid the coronavirus pandemic with her nine-year-old son.

Specifically, the Crush actress revealed that Bear recently ditched his famously lengthy hair, but she thinks he’ll be growing it out again after his trim. 

‘We went home together, we got in bed, and we were both looking at each other like something had happened. It was like a new person,’ she recalled.

‘He’s so great and he seems fine… His hair is growing back in and it’s very cute. His hair will be back to his waist soon, I’m sure, in no time.’

Bear appears to be following in his mother’s footsteps, being that he is set to make a brief appearance in his mom’s new movie, Sister of the Groom.

Alicia also revealed that Bear will be featured in the second series of her Netflix series The Baby-Sitters Club because she wanted to make sure he was able to go to work with her.

‘Because of COVID rules he can’t come unless he’s in it, so they put him in it… He plays the youngest child’s best friend,’ she explained.

‘All I wanted was to be able to bring my baby to work. We have to support working mothers, too… I’m not going to leave my kid for months. That’s just not happening. Out of the question.’
