After three kids, Camila Alves knows the secret to a healthy lifestyle.

Alves, 34, shares son Levi, 8, daughter Vida, 6, and son Livingston, 3, with her husband, actor Matthew McConaughey. The former model sat down with PEOPLE to talk about her post-baby body and motherhood.

“I never understood when people go, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s so easy being pregnant,’ ” she says. “No, it’s hard. It’s the most beautiful thing, yes, but it’s hard.”

One difficult part of her three pregnancies was losing the weight she gained.

“My first one, lost the weight super easy,” she says of bouncing back after giving birth to Levi in 2008.

“The second one, a little bit harder. The third one, it just wasn’t going anywhere. So actually, [Livingston is] 3 years old and I stopped myself and went, ‘Camila, you’re still holding on to your baby weight and he’s 3 years old. That’s not okay.’ ”

Camila Alves’ Kids Were the Taste Testers of Her Baby Food Line: ‘We Were All Working Together’

If there’s one thing Camila Alves didn’t do in regards to creating her new Yummy Spoonfuls organic baby food line for Target, it’s slap her name on it and call it a day.

“It’s funny because this isn’t something that we’re putting our name on,” the company’s co-founder — who partnered in 2014 with entrepreneur, chef and fellow mom Agatha Achindu — tells PEOPLE exclusively.

“It used to be just Agatha and [me] until we got into a position of hiring people,” the Brazilian-American Alves, 34, continues about the process that went into making Yummy Spoonfuls a reality.

“We started with really bare bones all the way until we really got the structure that we have. I can’t tell you how many [24-hour days] we worked straight.”

Camila Alves Launches Premium – and Affordable! – Organic Baby Food Line for Target

05/24/2016 at 10:00 AM ET

Camila Alves knows a thing or two about the challenge of feeding children a clean, fresh and healthy diet. As a busy, hands-on mom to Levi, 7½, Vida, 6, and Livingston, 3 — her kids with husband Matthew McConaughey — Alves has spent countless nights in a messy kitchen, surrounded by bowls of made-from-scratch veggie purees.

“When I had my first child, I started to try and make fresh food for him daily and I became frustrated with the amount of work, and time, involved in making baby food at home,” Alves, 34, told PEOPLE.

Her solution? To help create a line of baby and toddler food that was unprocessed, naturally nutritious, organic — and affordable. Partnering in 2014 with Agatha Achindu — a fellow mom, established chef and entrepreneur who had a similar mission — the duo co-founded Yummy Spoonfuls.

The line, which includes flash-frozen foods designed for babies and toddlers 4 months and up, will launch at Target stores on June 12, PEOPLE can exclusively announce.

So Chic! Matthew McConaughey’s Family Joins Him at Walk of Fame

11/17/2014 at 07:00 PM ET

The McConaugheys sense of style is seriously out of this world.

Interstellar actor Matthew McConaughey brought along his biggest supporters — wife Camila and kids Levi, 6, Vida, 4½, and Livingston, 2 next month — to the Monday unveiling of his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

And it was a true family affair: Almost everyone from the man of honor to his youngest mini me dressed in duds from Dolce & Gabbana.

Matthew, 45, wore a bone cotton three-piece suit while Camila wowed in a blue brocade cotton dress. But it was their three little ones that stole the show: Levi in Appaman‘s Mod Suit ($150) and Standard Shirt ($51), Vida and her floral cotton dress ($1,050) and Livingston in his navy two-button suit.

Is Camila McConaughey coming to a Target near you?

The wife of actor Matthew McConaughey announced Tuesday night at the Annie for Target collection launch in New York City that she will be partnering with the company as a mom ambassador.

While she will be doing a little bit more than ringing people up, if her 6-year-old son Levi had his way, she’d be doing just that.

“When I told Levi I was going to work with Target his eyes lit up and he was like, ‘Mom, are you gonna wear the red shirt?’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean the red shirt, Levi?’ ” she told PEOPLE after the big reveal.

“He goes, ‘The red shirt from the register! You’re gonna work at the register right?’ It was so sweet, the cutest thing ever, that he’s so innocent, he thought Mama’s gonna work at the register at Target!”

While this is Matthew McConaughey‘s year, it was son Levi who stole the spotlight April 24 when the brood attended the 2nd annual Mack, Jack & McConaughey charity gala in their hometown Austin, Texas.

Instead of wearing chic neutrals like the rest of his family (including mom Camila, sister Vida, 4, and grandmother Mary), the dapper 5½-year-old opted for Appaman‘s Chambray Mod suit ($148), white T-shirt and dark brown oxfords.

And here are the reasons why we’re glad the little guy decided to step out of his style box.
