Copy Kids - Product Review

 I've been given the opportunity to review Copy Kids DVD eat fruits and vegetables. We offer our children fruits and vegetables at most meals and they always gobble up the fruit, the vegetables, not so much. Copy Kids is media company that produces videos that encourages positive habits in young children, by watching and copying other kids. Its as simple as that! The kids in the DVD are kids similar in age to #1 and #2 and they were hooked right from the start.

On the DVD there are 12 various segments, about 6 minutes each in length. Each segment focuses on a different fruit or vegetable: bell peppers, carrots, raspberries, broccoli, bananas, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, oranges, avocados apples, and blueberries. We first watched the "carrot" segment.

 #2 hasn't really ever eaten a carrot by itself. Usually I have to put a bunch of peanut butter on it for her to lick off and she SOMETIMES takes a bite. After 1 minute of watching the DVD she willingly picked up the carrot and started chompin' away!

Both kids LOVED watching the video and #1 begged to watch more. I didn't plan on watching more than one right now, because I didn't want to overwhelm them, but we watched the bell pepper one as well. Much to my surprise #1 tried a bell pepper, but then politely told me he didn't want to finish it. #2 was just enjoying watching the kids on the DVD and didn't really want to try a bell pepper so I didn't push it. We also watched the banana and apples segment. BOTH my kids LOVE both these fruit, so they were happy about this one. In a later sitting we watched the other segments and tried the vegetables. This DVD is a neat way to get kids to try other fruits and vegetables while watching their "peers" or kids their ages try them. Some of the kids in the DVD are even "silly" as #1 put it. He enjoyed it thoroughly.

I highly recommend Copy Kids. If you'd like to watch a trailer of this video you can go here to watch the trailer. What's another great aspect of the DVD is that there is even a section for parents where Dr. Jay Gordon, MN, FAAP, author of Good Food Today, Great Kids Tomorrow, talks about childhood obesity and gives suggestions to parents to help their child eat healthier!
