Vanessa Lachey is trying to think green in an effort to protect the health of her unborn baby. The model mama-to-be – who is expecting her first child with hubby Nick Lachey later this year – has decided to alter her current lifestyle so her newborn child will have the chance to thrive in the healthiest environment possible.
“I definitely want to safeguard the future for my baby,” Vanessa reveals to E!Online. “I want to be health conscious for the baby.”
I’m learning about Bpa (Bisphenol A) friendly bottles. A couple have been sent to me and it’s great to understand that when plastics are heated, all the toxins (come out). And even food. Things that are pumped with hormones. You actually, physically see the changes in a 13-year-old girl that was eating hormone food and a 13-year-old girl that was eating organic.”
Speaking of eating, the 31-year-old television host is also doing her due diligence to put healthful foods into her body.
“I’m just trying to eat constantly and be aware of what I’m putting in my body and to maintain my caloric intake,” she says. “The only gift I can give my baby right now is what I put in my mouth and how I am health-conscious about trying to stay active.”
“I’m not going throw caution to the wind,” she continues. “[My baby] is actually developing and growing. I think about everything I eat and drink.”
Vanessa isn’t to only celebrity mama to go green for her children. Jessica Alba recently launched The Honest Company which sells toxic-free baby products.
