How Jules Sebastian gets her sons to eat healthy meals

Jules Sebastian and her chart-topping singer husband Guy Sebastian made headlines in 2017 when they debuted their incredible body transformations.

And it seems their healthy habits have extended to their young family too, with the Australian stylist revealing her sons Archie, three, and Hudson, five, enjoy eating nutritious meals.

Speaking to Stellar, the 35-year-old said the key to both her wellbeing and that of her sons was taking care of herself first.

‘Getting healthy is a motto that has extended to the whole family. With my son Hudson in school now and Archie in preschool, the morning rush can make it so difficult to throw together a nutritious lunch box,’ she said. 

The doting mum said that although Archie is the ‘fussier’ eater of the pair, she simply puts whatever she wants him eating that day on the plate as ‘one day, he’ll start eating it’. 

She will also employ age-old tactics like hiding vegetables in bolognese sauce and making tasty smoothies.

‘I just add a bit of jelly or honey, and they think it’s the same as an ice-cream,’ she said of her smoothie creations. 

‘Parents shouldn’t be afraid to get tough with their kids’ food habits. But I’m not going to rob them of eating treats. I do keep it to a minimum though, and use it as a reward,’ she said. 

The H2coco ambassador is also an advocate for employing a reward system and testing how foods go down at home first before putting them in the school lunch box.

Speaking to FEMAIL recently, Jules said her morning usually begins at 6am as that is when her boys wake up. 

‘I’m up and at ’em for breakfast, lunch packing, uniform pressing and basic morning madness,’ she said. 

‘I’ll somehow fit in a glorious three minute shower, face routine, then in the car for drop offs.

‘I’ll normally hit the gym then work if I don’t have my youngest for the day, otherwise it’s all parks, swimming lessons and grocery shopping for me.’

She said when it comes to scheduling and commitments, the priority is family.  

‘It all comes down to priority and what matters the most,’ she said.

‘To me, my family will always come first. I want to be available to them for whatever they need. I fit in my exercise and work around the kid’s school schedules.

‘It isn’t always easy, and I do need some extra help from time to time, but I always do the most important thing first, then everything else seems to flow and follow from there.’

She said her way of unwinding after a long, busy day was ‘Netflix, tea, husband hangouts and bed’.

Despite home life appearing better than ever at the moment, Jules revealed in November that raising her sons when they were newborns was the ‘hardest thing I’ve ever done’.

Appearing on the Thinkergirls podcast, Jules said that phase of life was ‘super duper exhausting and hard’.    

‘Maybe I’m just not a newborn person,’ she said, adding that the lack of sleep really got to her. 

‘Sleep is so important. It’s something I’ve definitely learned now that I get sleep.’  

However, Jules said that shifting her priorities so she could focus on raising her two boys helped her to become a better parent.

‘I’m a pretty chilled person, but I was very anxious person and I didn’t realise until that feeling left me,’ she said. 

Making more time to be with her family has meant Jules scaled back parts of her career so she could do things like daily school runs as well as cooking a family meal each night.

‘I styled for about a decade, had the babies and it just got really difficult. The hours are crazy and I wanted to see my kids,’ she said.

‘I fought it for so long, having babies, trying to do everything, have the perfect life and trying to keep it all together.’

Jules said once she ‘surrendered’ she found motherhood became easier, and she changed as a result.

She admitted her biggest struggle after her first child was born was learning to adjust her life to the needs of her baby.

‘I remember when I came home from hospital with Hudson, I needed to get milk… what is a five-minute exercise turns into a 45-minute thing.

‘You’ve just made a human being and that human being needs you 100 per cent of its life. That’s it now.  

Though Jules encourages anyone considering starting a family to ‘100 per cent do it’, and said it was the best thing she’d ever done, she also offered some sage words:

‘You just have to know it is life-altering, un-take-back-able and everything changes.’
