"I don't believe you should rule out any kind of food. I believe in enjoying life. I'm not a good dieter and since I've had kids, I have loosened up a lot. My favourite 'bad food'? French fries. I would eat them at every meal if I could," Paltrow told You magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The 43-year-old star says she is "realistic" when it comes to allowing her children any treats, so long as they balance them with "healthy" options.
"You can't tell them, 'No Coke, no cake'. It is not realistic. Their favourite foods are pasta and french fries. It's about trying to augment that with something healthy," she said.
Paltrow says food is incredibly important to her.
"Food means everything to me. When you walk into a kitchen and smell something simmering on the stove, you get a sense of home. Food creates a feeling of togetherness and nourishment," she said.
