Natalia Vodianova Has Half of a Pain au Chocolaton on Her ‘Cheat’ Day:

On keeping her kids’ weight in check – she has 5 kids:

‘Here’s what I did with my son. At 10, he was frankly getting a little chubby. I said to him, “You cannot sit down with this thing happening to your stomach.” So yes, I am a little military when it comes to them eating c**p… Well I tell them they are gorgeous and beautiful and all those good things, but I tell them to watch what they eat, because those habits will stay for ever, so you need to make healthier choices from the start.’

On her biggest craving:

‘When I moved to France, for two years I had a pain au chocolat every morning. Finally, I woke up and thought, I truly cannot face another one.’

On having one cheat day per week:

‘So now my daughter and I have half each on a Saturday morning – it’s our ritual. And we’re good with that.’

… says the 34 year-old supermodel in Net-a-Porter.

All of this is SO triggering for me and I haven’t battled an ED in 16 years. Mothers’ struggles with body image and food can have a lifelong devastating effect on their children. This is sad.

It’s a catch 22. You don’t not want to give your children issues, but at the same time you want to pass on healthy eating habits and raise children conscious of their bodyweight. It’s a fine line.

Well she doesn’t say that’s her cheat day but if it is that’s sad, half a pain au chocolate has 125 cakories. I’m about her size and that would be a small snack to me. I don’t hav cheat days, she’d probably consider my normal days calories a binge.

“Make healthier choices from the start” more like “grow up with an eating disorder” because their mom told them they can’t have stomach rolls when sitting down. She looks worn out and sad.

Also, why can’t we post comments via Disqus anymore? I liked that :/

This makes me think of the episodes of Sex and the City set in Paris. The pain au chocolat sounds good but I feel sorry for her kids. I think we all need to make better choices but I hope they don’t grow up with food issues.

I like her because she is honest about what she eats .rather then lies .
Same time I’m so happy I’m not one of her children 😂 . I mean this is so sad .to be a child under such a control and share a crossaint once a week and call it a cheat day !
Post like that makes me apreciate my life or i mean myparents 😆

That comment about her “chubby” 10 year-old is seriously ff—ed up. Great way to trigger eating disorders in children. She has always sounded obsessive but this is disgusting, it goes beyond her own problems.

Sad. Her children are going to have issues based on her own disordered eating and relationship with food.

Yeah, no. If your kid is “chubby” but you know they eat healthy and exercise, then just let it be. It’ll usually sort itself out when the growth spurt comes. And anyway, is it so terrible? Surely if you provide only crap food and the weight is an actual problem, then make changes – should be enough. Maybe I’m over sensitive about this but when I was a kid nothing hurt more than adults commenting on how I looked when they though I couldn’t hear (looking back I think I looked normal…) I don’t know which is worse, silent judging… Read more »

A friend of mine grew up with a mother like that. She then struggled with an eating disorder in her teens. The mother does not realize up to this day how much that eating disorder had to do with her upbringing. She gained quite a bit of weight since recovery and what does her mother do? Tell her she gained too much that she shouldn’t go to the other extreme, etc. Sooo clueless! Also, I eat a pain au chocolat about 3 times a week for breakfast too… It’s not very healthy for sure but in terms of calories mine… Read more »

your friends’ mother’s response to her weight gain makes me so sad 🙁 so many people don’t understand eating disorders in the slightest, and often they say things like this without even knowing that it could come across in a negative way, but something like this is impossible NOT to take as a negative. poor girl. I too have suffered from multiple eating disorders with relatively unsupportive/non-understanding parents and it is not easy. I hope that your friend is doing better x

I can understand wanting her kids to be healthy and not eat junk, but equally being “healthy” is also about your mental health, and having it instilled into your brain at such a young age that you should feel bad about eating some unhealthy food now and then is not a good thing to do. I appreciate that it’s a difficult thing to balance, not wanting to give your kids bad body image but equally wanting to make sure they’re informed that they aren’t the healthiest, but this is definitely NOT the way to go about it.

I don´really know why parents would comment on their young childs physique. if your kid is too big because of eating too much of unhealthy food, it is your choice to go buy healthier alternatives and try to get your kid moving. But you don´t need to mention anything to the child. I know a 12 year old girl who tried more diets than I can count (incl. weight watchers at age 9). all of them were her mothers idea and i can only imagine what the girl must feel like on the inside…she of course is now bigger than… Read more »

I see she’s raising her children the pro ana way… I hope they won’t be affected too much (although it seems unlikely). My mother tried to control my intake and weight from a very young age, telling me I should watch it, I should diet, I was getting a belly, I would get fat, and telling other mothers to stop giving me sweets; as a result I suffered from an eating disorder for 12 years. Good intentions? Maybe, who knows, but it can seriously f*ck children up. Sure, it’s good to raise your kids in a health-conscious way, and protect… Read more »

I LOVE her honesty and she’s right in everything, at least for what she lets know here.

she is teaching her kids what food is healthy, great, but a better option would be to teach them to have a healthy relashionship with food. which is pretty different. especially in her case it seems.

I ate a whole pack of captn crunch, kellogs frosties etc per week, hahaha, I spent 80% of my pocket money on candy, and I turned only fat when I spent 6 months in America (I’m from Germany). At the age of 25 I can say, it’s never too late to change habits to healthy.

my mother was a model in the 80s and instilled me with a bunch of bs that led to a serious ED. luckily, i had other female role models in my life that served as “surrogate mamas.” i hope her children have those figures in their lives because if they listen to her crap they’ll definitely adopt some nasty mentalities.

Just keep healthy food in the house then with an occasional junk food snack. People need to remember though, “healthy” doesn’t just mean fruit/veg/low calorie. Kids are growing and sometimes their calorie needs will outweigh yours. I was a twig as a child and super ravenous in my teen years whilst being underweight. It would’ve been crazy if my parents had an issue with my eating large amounts of calories and *gasp* sometimes cookies and hamburgers. PS: I don’t have “bad habits” as an adult. I’ve had 3 kids and weigh 125 lbs. I seriously needed a ton of calories… Read more »
