Will and Jada Pinkett Smith had some concerns when it comes to their son’s eating habits.


On an episode of Red Table Talk, the Smith family discussed their eating patterns, during what was called me to a “emergency” meeting by Will.


Will opened up about gaining weight during a family vacation. The family referred to him as “pudgemuffin.” “I get bored and I start to eat,” Will said.


Now on the other hand, Jada and Jaden are different when it comes to food. They’d prefer to not eat instead of snack throughout the day.


Jada explained the intervention came about because, “Will and I [Jada] had a bit of an intervention with Jaden because he’s a vegan now, but we realized he wasn’t getting enough protein,” Jada explained. “So he was wasting away. He just looked drained, he was just depleted, he wasn’t getting the nutrients.”


Also noting that he had “dark circles” around his eyes, with a grayish tone to his skin. “We got really nervous. But you’re definitely looking better now.” Will explained.


“I also just wanna’ say that I’m vegetarian, that I’ve tried to be vegan,” Jaden mentions. “I’m vegetarian, you know, I’ve tried to eat vegan meals. I’ll go vegan for a week or so but for the past year I’ve been vegetarian.”


“I was just eating like two meals a day…maybe one,” Jaden continued. “Maybe just that one big meal and I’m like, ‘Oh, you know, I didn’t get around to it.’”
