Drew Barrymore‘s own heart just got a little bigger: her baby girl is here!

Alicia Silverstone: I’m Raising My Son to Be as Healthy as Possible

04/16/2014 at 10:35 PM ET

In a world of over-sugared, over-stimulated toddlers, Alicia Silverstone says that when it comes to raising her son Bear Blu, 3 next month, she values going back to basics.

Eschewing plastic toys for vintage gardening buckets and sugary snacks for salt-free rice cakes, Silverstone, a vegan for 16 years, says Bear is thriving and has never been sick.

“He loves the food I give him,” Silverstone, 37, tells PEOPLE. Her second book, The Kind Mama, explains her pre and postnatal methods for staying healthy and happy. “He’s not being deprived of anything. For him, having amazing fruit is like candy!”

Conceding that there could potentially be a time that Bear samples some unhealthy (or non-vegan) treats, Silverstone says, “I wouldn’t freak out. It’s all going to be available, I just want him to be the healthiest he can be for as long as possible.”

Whether she’s walking the red carpet or celebrating her baby shower, Ciara has managed to look flawless since announcing her pregnancy.

But while the mom-to-be — who’s now in her third trimester — doesn’t mind dressing up her bump, she admits pregnancy has put a limit on her glamorous get-ups.

“I like to be free and comfortable and relaxed. I don’t want to feel stressed. It’s already so much with your belly being so big,” she told PEOPLE at the Safe Kids Day event on April 5 in West Hollywood, Calif.

“When I have to get cute, I will get cute and put on some heels for an hour or two — and then throw those things off as soon as I get in the car!”

The singer may not be taking style tips from Kim Kardashian‘s pregnancy playbook, but the good friends have found plenty of other ways to bond over their babies. They were even spotted shopping together at Bel Bambini.

It’s only been six months since Jaime King and husband Kyle Newman welcomed their son James Knight and while she’s already returned to her former svelte self, life in general is a lot more family oriented for the star.

“I go hiking with my husband and my son,” the Hart of Dixie actress tells PEOPLE of her desired workout regime. “I just like the bonding time that we have when we do that.”

But just because she is with her family doesn’t mean that she’s not focused on her body.

“I apply all the tricks I learn from Mary Helen Bower‘s Ballet Beautiful DVDs, which I also do,” King says. “When I am pushing the stroller and going on walks it’s like doing Pilates at the same time because you are really using your core and your arms. I just try and be focused when I am doing it.”
