Alicia Silverstone says her seven-year-old son Bear has never needed medicine, thanks to the benefits of his veganism.

‘He’s never had to take medicine in his life. He can get sniffles and a runny nose but he’s not down, he still goes to school,’ Alicia, 42, dished to Page Six.

‘Two times in his life has he been like: “Mommy I don’t feel good,” and it was only for a few hours and he was back running around,’ said the actress.

Alicia became a star at 18 with the film Clueless, went vegan at the age of 21 and promoted the lifestyle on the talk show circuit – often to the amusement of the hosts.

‘I remember when I would go on David Letterman and go on Jay Leno and they’d be like: “Vegan?! What’s a vegan?”,’ Alicia recalled to Page Six of those early days.

‘And they would just make a whole fun riff on it because it was like I was an alien, no one was talking about being vegan on television.’

When she said on The Graham Norton Show in 2008 that she made her four dogs go vegan, Graham vamped: ‘Aren’t you scared they’re going to crack and eat you?’

Alicia shares her little pride and joy with S.T.U.N. frontman Christopher Jarecki, whom she married in 2005 and filed for divorce from this May.

They have apparently remained amicable co-parents, to the point Alicia keeps her granola at his home so that it does not overly tempt her in her own.

‘I can’t keep it in the house. I let Christopher have it at his house. I’ll make it and then give it to him because if it’s in the house, I can’t stop eating it,’ said Alicia to Page Six.

Alicia uses the granola in a recipe that she learned from her mother and has included in her new cookbook The Kind Diet, which she has been doing the rounds plugging.

Her parenting choices when it comes to food has attracted online criticism before, going back to when Bear Blu was not yet a year old.

Alicia posted a video in which she fed her infant – whom she had already decided to raise vegan – by chewing food and then transferring it from her mouth straight to his.

The video, posted to her blog The Kind Life, set off a blaze of controversy, prompting her to defend herself at a press conference for her movie Vamps.

‘People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years. It’s a weaning process. Honestly, when I posted the video I was not thinking, so maybe I was like Cher!’ said Alicia, referring to her Clueless character, not the pop diva Cher.
