Julia Roberts’ Gardening Family

Julia Roberts has gone back to basics to encourage her children to eat their fruit and vegetables: she grows her own! The actress says her four-year-old twins Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus ‘Finn’ Walter and 20-month-old son Henry Daniel take great pride in their organic garden.

“The children love it and I think it’s the best training for them,” Julia explains. “I think when children know their food sources they’re more inclined to eat what they’re growing because they’re so proud of it.”

“To watch my kids eat kale is a pretty proud moment for me as a mom.”

She’s taking less film roles these days, but Julia is still honing her skills!

“When you’ve got three toddlers in the house you’re performing all day long, anyway, with puppet shows and stories,” she notes. “I act around the clock.”

And, like many moms, Julia says she often wonders where her day goes.

“There are some days when as soon as you’ve finished cooking breakfast and cleaning the kitchen it’s time to start lunch and by the time you’ve done that you’re doing dinner and thinking there has to be a menu we can order from,” she said. “Some days it’s superfun and some days it’s a chore.”

But even on those tough days, Julia says she wouldn’t change a thing.

“My life at home gives me absolute joy,” she affirmed.
