Copy Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables DVD Review & Giveaway

All mothers want what is best for their kids and one of the most important things we can do for them is introduce them to healthy eating habits. Doing so has just become easier with a new dvd- Copy Kids- Eat Fruits and Vegetables.

The idea for this project came about when Cai Dixon noticed her young daughter was more willing to try fruits and vegetables when she saw other children eating them. Kids love mimicking other kids, I know this firsthand from years of experience in the child care field, but I must admit, I was a bit skeptical that watching other kids eat veggies would encourage my kids to do so themselves. They are all huge fruit fans, so we focused on watching the vegetable portions of the dvd.

I wanted to start off with something familiar, so the first time we watched Copy Kids, we got some carrots to eat. All 3 of the kids ate all of the carrots I provided them with. They usually just eat a few and leave the rest. I knew then that this was probably going to work. I let them watch some other sections of the dvd without a food to eat because they were interested and I was not going to say no to them watching other kids practicing good habits. My 4 year old, Maddie, has asked to watch this movie every day since the first time we watched it. We watched it and ate bell peppers (one of my two year old twins devoured half a red bell pepper and then half of a yellow before I cut him off!), then another time with cucumbers and we plan to watch it while eating avacado and broccoli soon. Maddie is really excited about this movie! It is really fun to watch because it is unscripted and kids being themselves always makes for the best entertainment. It really is a cute movie.

The dvd is divided in chapters making it easy to watch just one segment focusing on one food or choosing to watch several. The vegetables and fruits included on this dvd are bell peppers, cucumbers, carrots, avocado, tomatoes, broccoli, oranges, bananas, raspberries, strawberries and apples.

I know that getting kids to eat vegetables and even fruit in some cases can be a chore. I usually don't advocate eating in front of the tv, but I think this is a wonderful way to introduce your kids to new, healthy, natural foods. It's fun for them, it's healthy for them and it makes things easier on you!

  1. Okay, I all kinds of want this video for my picky eater! Miles loves grapes, peas, and edamame. He won't touch broccoli or carrots.

  2. Mine will eat broccoli and green beans. Any other veggies she wont touch!
