I haven’t seen photos of Sarah Jessica Parker’s daughters in years, so I almost started crying when I realized that Tabitha and Marion Broderick are already 14, and will soon be 15. James Wilkie Broderick is 21 years old, and as you can see, he inherited his mother’s perfect face, while the girls look more like Matthew. Anyway, it’s time for another interesting interview with SJP. Last year, SJP caused a minor controversy (at least in our comments section) when she went a little critical about how her family never orders takeout and they eat one every night. Cook and eat food together. Yeah, I still don’t really buy that. But SJP made some new comments about how she doesn’t want to repeat her patterns of disordered eating with her kids when it comes to sugary snacks.

When it comes to food, Sarah Jessica Parker doesn’t want her daughters to follow in her footsteps. The actress has intentionally encouraged twins Tabitha and Marion to have a “better relationship” with food than they did growing up, she told “Ruthy’s Table 4” podcast listeners on Monday.

“When I had my girls, I didn’t want them to have a relationship with food that was repulsive and see it as the enemy,” the 59-year-old “Sex and the City” alum explained, noting that her My childhood home used to do this: “Don’t allow sugar… or chocolate or cookies.” Because of that restriction, Parker and her siblings bought “a lot of cakes and cookies” when they went out.

“I didn’t want that for them,” the “And Just Like That” star said of her 14-year-old children. “In our house, we have cookies, we have cake, we have everything. And as a result, your relationship improves. My daughters will have the same stats they have and hopefully be healthy,” she added. “They are athletes and they enjoy food and they have different tastes. “I hope they can retain their love for the experience and their joy for the taste.”

The Golden Globe winner, who is also mom to son James, 21, with husband Matthew Broderick, shared rare details about her home life in the episode. “Matthew cooks. We both cook every day,” Parker said. “We eat dinner as a family every night. And always have dinner every Sunday night. It’s just what we do.”

I really like this way of keeping cookies, cakes and desserts in the house. You can really do the work of role-modeling a healthy relationship with food, while also showing your kids that enjoying a candy bar or a few cookies isn’t the end of the world. Many parents pass their disordered eating habits on to their children, and I appreciate that SJP has tried to break that cycle. It also seems that their daughters are little athletes – teenage girls play sports, I’m sure they eat everything that is not banned and it’s okay because “teenage metabolism”.
