Alicia Silverstone’s viral bird-like video, where the actress is seen feeding her young son Bear Blue pre-chewed food out of her own mouth, caused quite a stir. "I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup... from my mouth to his. It's his favorite... and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I'm eating," Silverstone wrote on her personal blog.
The practice of pre-chewing food is not completely unheard of, but very rare in the United States because it risks passing diseases from parent to child. Silverstone has faced harsh criticism from fans and health experts alike for sharing her strange feeding technique. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
