(Bauer Griffin)more pics »Julia Roberts (Bauer Griffin)Julia Roberts may have had her fill of yummy treats on the set of Eat, Pray, Love, but that doesn't mean she feeds her kids the unhealthy stuff. The mom of three admits she doesn't exactly practice what she preaches.

"I'm a pretty strict mom when it comes to sweets, even though I have such a sweet tooth myself," she told People.com.

Sure, her little ones enjoy sugary snacks from time to time -- but only on special occasions. "You want sweets, ice cream and cake to be a great treat and a celebration," she added. "Something that's not everyday. I think this makes them appreciate it when they do have it."

But as for Roberts? "I'm not strict with myself," she said. "I cheat."
