No sweet treats for Blue Ivy

No sweet treats for Blue Ivy

Beyonce doesn't let her daughter eat sugar.

The 'Drunk in Love' singer has Blue Ivy, two, with rapper husband Jay-Z and they are committed to her having as healthy a lifestyle as possible, which means cutting out unnecessary sweet treats.

A source said: "She make sure Blue only eats healthy. She doesn't get any white sugar unless it's a birthday party or a special occasion."

For a treat, Beyonce is said to give the youngster fruit slices, and she is not allowed any pre-packaged goods either.

The source added to Us Weekly magazine: "Processed foods are a big no in their family."

In December last year, Beyonce and Jay took up a challenge to eat only vegan food for 22 days, which they broke only at Christmas.

Explaining the challenge, Jay wrote on his blog: This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' every day. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought...

"I don't know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We'll see... (sic)"
