Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard's children have interesting taste buds when it comes to beverages.

The actress/producer appeared on the Kelly Clarkson Show on Monday and revealed some unique habits about her kids. According to Bell, her two daughters—Delta, 8, and Lincoln, 9—might spring for a non-alcoholic beer over an apple juice.

"My kids have ordered non-alcoholic beers at restaurants before. Which sounds insane, if you don't know—'cause context is important, we've learned that over the last few years," Bell said, seemingly nodding to her and Shepard getting roasted in 2021 for saying they "wait for the stink" before bathing their kids.

She noted that her husband is a recovering addict, so they keep the alternative beverage on hand.

"He likes non-alcoholic beer, so he'd pop one open, he'd have [our baby] on his chest, and we'd walk and look at the sunset," she recalled. "As a baby, she was pawing at it, and sometimes she would, like, suck on the rim of it. So I think it feels to her like something special, something daddy, something family. ... There's no alcohol in it."

The 43-year-old continued, "So we've been at restaurants where she's said, 'Do you have you have any non-alcoholic beer?' And I'm like, 'Maybe, maybe, maybe we don't...we just keep that for home, home time.'"

The Frozen and Veronica Mars lead had some words for critics who question her for allowing her kids to indulge. "But then I'm sort of like, you can judge me if you want, I'm not doing anything wrong. That's your problem," she said.

Kristen Bell admitted on Say Yes! with Carla Hall in 2020 that she allows her daughters to drink their dad's non-alcoholic beer. Knowing she would likely receive backlash, she said, "I'm going to get a lot of flak for this. And let me start by saying I don't care. I'm a great parent, I think. I'm learning every day."
