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.”

Roald Dahl’s classic Matilda proves the power of imagination — so it’s no surprise such a sharp little girl would inspire an especially creative Easter craft.

Of course, there are eggs involved, but crafting expert Amanda Kingloff, author of Project Kid: 100 Ingenious Crafts for Family Fun, also draws upon the character’s love of reading for her spring holiday project.

In an exclusive video for PEOPLE, Kingloff and her little helpers — the four stars of the Broadway hit, Matilda the Musical — show you how to make pretty decoupage Easter eggs using recycled books!

How to Enter Amex’s EveryDay Moments Mother’s Day Contest

04/16/2014 at 01:25 PM ET

American Express is launching its new Amex EveryDay credit card with a year-long campaign to shine a spotlight on America’s #EveryDayMoments — from quality time with the kids to a night out with friends.

It kicks off this month with a Mother’s Day selfie and snapshots photo contest culminating in an epic prize — a getaway to New York City for 50 winners and their guests. American Express will continue to recognize and reward consumers for sharing their #EveryDayMoments throughout the year with a series of themed contests, sweeps and unique experiences, like a live concert with Maroon 5 streamed nationally on June 20 and a soon-to-be-announced Father’s Day Sweeps.

The Mother’s Day contest includes an advertisement featuring Tina Fey and daughters Alice, 8, and Penelope, 2. Kristen Bell has also teamed up with the company to share a selfie — the Frozen star snapped a shot of herself captioned, “Making some delicious baby food with veggies from the garden and farm fresh local delivery.”
