Megan Fox raves about the ‘organic, sustainable, vegan school’ her children with Brian Austin Green attend as she opens up about her parenting philosophy
- Actress, 33, is mom to three boys with 90210 actor, 46
- Sons are named Noah Shannon, seven, Bodhi Ransom, five, and Journey River, three
- Fox says individuality and empathy are key traits she seeks to instill in her boys

Megan Fox offered her opinions on parenting, and how she and husband Brian Austin Green are raising their three sons, ranging from the education they’re getting, to how she feels it’s crucial to let them explore their own paths.
‘We send them to an organic, sustainable, vegan school where they’re seed-to-table, they plant their own food,’ Fox, 33, told People Monday. ‘They grow it, they harvest it and they take it to local restaurants to sell it, so they understand how all of that works.’
Fox has long been an admirer of the vegan lifestyle – and was fully immersed in an all-vegan diet as recently as 2011 – until she said she shed too many pounds as result.

‘For a year and a half, until about four months ago, I followed a strict vegan diet based on raw fruits and vegetables, no bread, sugar and coffee,’ she said in a 2011 interview with Amica magazine. ‘But I had lost too much weight. So now I eat a bit of everything.’
The Oak Ridge, Tennessee-born beauty said on Monday that she’s ‘very specific about never harming animals’ as an example to her three kids with Green, 46: Noah Shannon, seven, Bodhi Ransom, five, and Journey River, three.
‘We don’t step on ants; we don’t do things like that,’ the Jennifer’s Body actress told the publication.
‘We don’t rip flowers out of the ground, because we think they’re beautiful. I teach them that plants are sentient beings – they have feelings, thoughts and emotions – so that’s what we’re doing.’

Fox shared an anecdote about a time in which her son ‘accidentally stepped on a roly-poly’ and ‘was devastated,’ leading the family to conduct ‘a full funeral’ for the late bug.
‘We did a ceremony, we buried it, we lit sage, we released him back,’ she said. ‘So they’re very involved.’
The Zeroville actress said she strives to let her kids be themselves and intervene as little as possible.
‘It’s about releasing control, right? That’s all it is,’ Fox said. ‘It’s allowing them to be who they are and relinquishing control, because they were born to be who they are, and it’s my job to support that process, not to get involved and micromanage and mold them into what I think they should be.
‘It’s being of that mindset of realizing that they come as the teachers to us. We’re here to keep them alive, but we’re learning all the lessons from them.’

Green, who is dad to son Kassius Lijah, 17, with actress Vanessa Marcil, said that he and Fox don’t encourage their sons ‘to be themselves,’ but rather ‘just encourage whoever they are.’
The 90210 actor added: ‘I know for me … the more I really realize and am okay with the fact that they are people.’
Fox and Green were out in a rare public outing in a Hollywood romance that has always had the public’s attention. They began dating in 2004 when they worked on the show Hope & Faith. (He was 30 at the time and she was 18.)
They eventually got engaged – and broke things off in 2009 – before reconciling and marrying June 24, 2010. In more recent years, Megan filed for divorce in August of 2015, but the pair got on better terms and got back together the following year, which is also when they welcomed their youngest son.
In April, the actress put in paperwork to dismiss all divorce filings, confirming their relationship is on more solid ground than ever as they approach their 10-year anniversary as a couple.
