Victoria Beckham loves supermarket shopping.

The former Spice Girls singer - who has children Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 11, Cruz, nine, and Harper, two, with husband David Beckham - prefers to pick up groceries herself as she knows that way she will get the specific products she likes.

She told British VOGUE magazine: ''I like going to the supermarket myself. I'm not saying I go all the time but then, you know, you're going to get exactly what you want.''

The 40-year-old star is careful about what she eats, but stopped her vegan diet - which involved no animal products - as she felt she lacked energy.

She said: ''I was vegan for over a year but I just felt like I didn't have the energy that you need.''

While Victoria enjoys grocery shopping, there are other household chores she won't do.

She said: ''I don't ever do the washing up.''

As well as watching her diet, Victoria also takes a number of supplements to keep looking youthful, including collagen pills and bee pollen.

She said: ''[Bee pollen has] 22 amino acids, 12 vitamins, 28 minerals. And please don't write that I'm completely mad - we can't have wrinkles.

''I've been to LA, I've got the vitamins and the collagen pills. And I need a lot of energy to be buzzing about.''
