Copy Kids Eat Your Veggies DVD Review and Giveaway

COPY KIDS 
Review and Giveaway
Get Kids Hooked on Eating Fruits and Vegetables

The premise behind Copy Kids Eat Fruit and Vegetables is that young children are more willing to try new fruits and vegetables when they see another child eating them.  I believe this idea is totally valid because I have witnessed this myself with my own kids.  My older daughter always eats better when she's around her older cousins and my 2 year old son who shows little interest in sitting at the table and eating, will sit and eat a meal, even food he's consistently refused before, when we have interesting company over (i.e grandparents, aunts or uncles - but unfortunately non of them live close by).  So I was very excited for the opportunity to review the Copy Kids DVD.

J wanted to make a movie of her eating her veggies just like "those kids"

I told my daughter I had a new movie to watch she had never seen before and didn't tell her the name of it.  The first two comments she made as we watched the Copy Kids DVD were

"I want a pepper!" and "I want to copy her!"

While watching the Copy Kids DVD my 5 year old daughter ate a whole bell pepper and my 2 year old son was munching on bell pepper too...he kept spitting it out after a while, but he wanted to keep trying it because he thought it was fun to eat it while watching the kids on the DVD enjoy and have fun eating their vegetables.  It's a good start considering before seeing this DVD he wouldn't even TRY bell pepper (and it's been offered plenty as we often have slices of raw bell pepper at dinner).

Then my daughter wanted to eat a bunch of cucumber followed by 3 enormous carrots.  She got too full and couldn't finish all 3 but she ate most of 2.  She planned on eating raw broccoli after the carrots but she got too full.

Here's what my kids were saying while watching Copy Kids Eat Fruit and Vegetables

"I WANT A PEPPER TOO!"

"I WANT TO COPY HER!" (she didn't know the name of the video was "copy kids")

"I want to copy those kids!"

"LOOK! He likes that!" (avocado)

"Can I eat those?"

"Today I'm going to eat ALL the vegetables that they're eating"

"LOOK!!!  They LIKE them!"

"AJSDLKJEWRNJHAJjadfsajslfjasf!!!!!" (I couldn't understand her mouth was stuffed with peppers)

"I'm going to eat cucumbers after that (peppers) and then watch the cucumber movie when I eat cucumbers mom"

the shocking part was my finicky 2 year old grabbing slices of bell pepper and demanding "MORE MOO-EE!!! MORE MOO-EE!" and nibbling on the pepper (MOO-EE means Movie) as the movie had gone to the menu after the bell pepper segment had finished.

The Copy Kids DVD shows kids of various ages having fun and enjoying their food.  It is cute and the sound effects and style of it reminds me a little of the Baby Einstein series, which kids really enjoy.  The evening ended with my kids fighting over the bell pepper strips.  As much as my kids enjoyed and were fascinated by this video and inspired to chow on some raw veggies, watching little children/toddlers eat is not all that appetizing to me.  When the toddlers in the video were scarfing down avocado in HD on my big screen, it made me want to gag...despite that, overall the video is very cute, fun and makes my kids want to eat more fruits and vegetables so it's got two thumbs up in my book!  Just make sure you have a selection of fruits and vegetables on hand before you put this on or your kids might be upset...they want to COPY THE KIDS while watching it!
