“I don’t think children should be fed chicken fingers and mashed potatoes or french fries,” she said.

She further urged parents to choose different meals for their children.

“I don’t think that’s really what it’s all about. It’s about exposing children to as much as possible,” Stewart said.

Earlier this month, Stewart fueled a debate on Instagram about what food “children would eat.”

This comes after the celebrity chef posted a photo of her fish stew on social media and said: “Kids are sure to spoon this stew up.”

Accompanying the photo of the meal, Martha wrote a pretty epic caption that said the stew was “packed with chunks of potatoes, flaky salmon, and ears of fresh corn cut into rounds.”

She added that the “light broth” was made with heavy cream and clam juice — even recommending her followers to cut the kernels off the cob for their little ones.

But it was the comments from parents that were relatable to many…

“My kid wouldn’t go within 40 feet of that and he eats dirt,” one wrote, while another said, “I’m quite doubtful kids will be stoked to eat this.”

But other parents expressed how their children would be “happy to try new things.”

It’s not a surprise that Stewart took her grandchildren to eat “strange” things on an African safari…

“They do not turn anything away,” she said. “I took them on a safari to Africa, they ate ostrich. They ate all kinds of strange things.”

Stewart offers a variety of child-friendly recipes on her official website that are both “nutritious and safe,” according to The Independent.
