Being a Bollywood star, Kareena Kapoor Khan can't afford to have a sweet tooth, but the actress says that as a child ice cream was her favourite 'cheat food' and she used to have it hiding from her mother.

The 35-year-old actress said she used to spend all her pocket money on ice creams.
"When I was in school, as soon as it would get over, before I would reach home, I would eat the ice cream because my mom didn't allow me to eat it. So before telling her and reaching home, I used to quickly use my pocket money to buy ice creams, gobble it up in the building before entering the lift," Kareena told reporters here.
She was speaking at the launch of ice cream brand Magnum's new flavour - Brownie.
The "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" star also said that her actor-husband Saif Ali Khan loves eating ice creams, so much so that there are times when she has to remind him that he has already eaten more than two.
"In fact he loves eating ice creams, a lot if I may say. The classic flavour of Magnum...I have to tell him 'Saif you already had two, you can't keep eating more'," she said.
When asked about the popular belief that people gain weight if they eat too many chocolates, Kareena said, "It doesn't seem like if you look at me. Chocolate definitely uplifts your mood and of course once in a while if you indulge, there is nothing wrong at all. It is good for skin, and better for heart...," she said.
On the film front, the actress will be next seen opposite Arjun Kapoor in "Ki & Ka", directed by R Balki. The movie is scheduled to release on April 1.
