Gisele Bundchen has revealed she raises her own chickens in her Los Angeles garden and uses them to eat leftover food to cut down on household waste.

Gisele Bundchen raises her own chickens. The 33-year-old supermodel is so committed to eco-friendly living, she has her own flock of birds in her Los Angeles garden and relies on them to take care of any leftover food so it's not wasted. She explained: "I have a beautiful garden in L.A. where I raise chickens. We have very little waste because the chickens eat all of the vegetable scraps, and anything they won't eat, I put in my compost pile with the chicken poo."

The Victoria's Secret beauty, who has two children – Benjamin (4) and 17-month-old Vivian - with her husband, football star Tom Brady, also revealed she is fond of making snacks from scratch for her kids.

When she's not strutting her stuff down the runway, Gisele and Benjamin like to make fruit leather - chewy rolls of dried fruit - for the youngster to take to school.

The Brazilian star told Food & Wine magazine: "Benjamin and I make his school snack together - fruit leather in our dehydrator. You can use any fruit, but I always use banana as the base because it has great texture and sweetness.

"My son is so proud; he goes to school and tells all his friends he made his own snack."
