Padma Lakshmi Says her Daughter is an Adventurous Eater

November 3, 2011

Padma Lakshmi's daughter, Krishna, seems to have taken after her mom and is open to trying different types of foods -- an unusual trait for a toddler.

"She's got a very diverse palate probably because I've nursed her through the last three seasons of 'Top Chef,'" Lakshmi explains. "She eats seafood and dairy and she loves all kinds of spices, veggies, fruits, and beans and rice. She's a good eater. I'm really, really lucky."

The cookbook author also explained that she tries to feed her daughter meals that resemble her own.

"We always make something which has a starch, a protein, and veggies in the same dish, often like a savory porridge like a lentil soup or black eyed peas and kale with some couscous thrown in. So, it's always some version of that and we all eat it," Lakshmi said, adding that Krishna has never even tasted packaged baby food.
