Washington: Salma Hayek has admitted that she tricks her daughter, Valentina Paloma into healthy eating habits by hiding vegetables in her food.
It is Hayek’s acting skills, which comes in handy, while getting her daughter to eat the greens.
“I camouflage them. They love pasta … [so] I put [them] in tomato sauce,” People.com quotes her as telling Rachael Ray Show.
“You know what you can hide really well? Aubergine [eggplant], roast carrots, roast bell peppers [and] you can put a little bit of greens if you put enough of the other stuff.”
The Puss In Boots star, while talking about her skills in kitchen, quipped that her 4-year-old should not have even a hint about her sneaky ways.
“There’s got to be no clue that you lied because then she’ll find it, like, ‘Aha!’”
