Many parents post videos of themselves feeding their young children. But actress Alicia Silverstone went one step further. A video, posted to YouTube on March 20, shows her feeding her now 11-month-old son, Bear Blu, by chewing food and passing it directly into his mouth from hers.

The "Clueless" star also posted the video on her site, "The Kind Life," which is an offshoot of her bestselling vegan cookbook, "The Kind Diet."

"I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon," Silverstone wrote. "I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup ... from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite ... and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!"

Not everyone reacted positively to Silverstone's method of feeding her son.

"She's an adorable mother, with a cute kid but this video is still weird as hell," said one comment on YouTube.

But on Silverstone's site, reader Kate Kelly posted, "Alicia, I had never thought of this before but it's the cutest way of feeding your baby! I have a 7 month old and I think I will try this method ... she is always trying to lick my mouth anyways might as well give her a reward!"

Fox News asked medical and nutritional experts what they thought of the feeding method. "It doesn't seem like a hygienic practice," one doctor told the site.
