When Alison Sweeney’s kids open their lunch boxes, they never find greasy bags of chips or sugary cookies.

Instead, they’ve got good-for-you snacks like homemade trail mix and breakfast bars that The Biggest Loser host whips up in her Hollywood Hills kitchen. After years of struggling with her weight before finally getting healthy and fit, Sweeney has made following good nutrition principles a priority, not just for herself but for her husband Dave and their children, Ben, 9, and Megan, 5.

“My kids have known from the get-go that we all need to make healthy choices,” Sweeney tells PEOPLE. “They never expect to eat from the kids’ menu at a restaurant.” They don’t expect typical kid snacks at lunchtime either.

Break out the blue confetti: Renee Oteri is expecting a second son!

The former Bachelor contestant and her new husband, Bracy Maynard, revealed the sex of their baby on the way during a gender reveal party on Saturday.

“We knew we wanted to do something special for our friends and family,” Oteri tells PEOPLE exclusively. “It felt like New Year’s and the Fourth of July combined … but a thousand times more exciting!”

Oteri, 32, and Maynard used a party popper for the big reveal, with guests cheering as blue pieces of paper rained down on the couple.

“Everyone, including ourselves, had such an adrenaline rush,” she says. “This definitely beats balloons or a color-filled cake.”

While she’s kept busy so far into her pregnancy, launching the new TNT series Legends, Ali Larter says things are about to quiet down.

“It’s time to slow down and stop working for a second and start being with my family,” the actress, 38, told PEOPLE at the Pampers #babygotmoves event in New York City Wednesday.

Already parents to 3½-year-old son Theodore “Teddy” Hayes, Larter and husband Hayes MacArthur are expecting their second child this winter, and have no preference for a boy or a girl: “[Just] healthy babies — all we can ask for. And that’s what I pray for,” she says.
