Even celeb parents, like Ayesha and Steph Curry, have those moments when they just have to let go and accept that parenting isn’t always perfect. In a cover-story for the March issue of Parents magazine, Ayesha Curry shares her experiences as a mom of three.

She revealed that in their house there are definitely rules that the family has to follow, and yet there are times when those rules get broken—especially one in particular.

“The toughest one for us to follow is no phones at the table,” Ayesha explains. “Of course, there are those moments when the kids do something super cute and you just have to record it, but we really try to implement the no-phones rule. Our kids love being at the table together, talking about their day, singing songs and telling jokes. It’s a special time.”

The cookbook author and host of the upcoming ABC series Family Food Fight also revealed that, despite her culinary expertise, not all mealtimes are picture perfect in the Curry household. “I’m not going to sugarcoat it—weekday breakfasts are tough,” Curry admits. “Sometimes it’s a kids’ protein bar or handfuls of fruit served up on paper towels and eaten in the car.”

She does also share her tips for getting her kids to be healthy eaters. “I try to make vegetables fun for the kids by getting them involved with cooking,” Curry told Parents. “Ninety-nine percent of the time, the girls are willing to try whatever it is they helped me make, whether it’s salads, curries or a kale smoothie.”
