Copy-Kids DVD Review & Giveaway - Ends 3/14

Copy-Kids is a newly released DVD for young children age 6 months-5 years. This new, innovative DVD is a great tool for parents who want to get their kids to enjoy eating fruits and vegetables, and really encourages positive eating habits in youngsters. Copy-Kids features 12, 7-minute chapters, one for each of twelve fruits & veggies:

Apples – Avocado – Banana – Bell Pepper – Blueberries – Broccoli – Carrots – Cucumber – Orange – Raspberries – Strawberries – Tomato

Each 7 minute chapter features several young kids (one at a time), eating the fruit or vegetable specified for that chapter. Yep, that's it! Simple, basic, and high quality filming too. I have to say I was quite skeptical about this DVD at first, but I actually really like it now that I've seen it. Copy-Kids has an extremely simple, but effective concept. Kids naturally enjoy copying one another, and eating new foods is no exception.

Buddy is SO intrigued and watches each chapter with all his attention on the kids in the DVD. It's awfully fun watching Buddy interact and copy every move of another child on the playground so this had to be great. Although he is pretty good at eating his fruits and veggies, he certainly has his preferences and normally won't try everything I offer. I've always made an emphasis on mommy and daddy eating our fruits and veggies at meal-time, so for the most part he has learned to enjoy them too. However, I certainly never just sit around and eat a stalk of broccoli or whole pepper like the kids in this DVD! He's never had that as an example from anyone, and I've never introduced them to him prior to reviewing Copy-Kids. Besides, kids like to copy other kids more than their own parents or other adults. It's just what they do! So when I gave Buddy a plate with a pepper, some broccoli and a strawberry (3 things he's not too fond of), this is what happened!

YES! We had a small success! When he took a bite of the broccoli, he said "Mmmm, good!" While I wish he would have tried more than a bite of each (he bit in to the pepper but never actually took a piece out), I have noticed he is more likely to eat and try more fruits and veggies in general since this first encounter with Copy-Kids. A few days ago, a small bowl of various fruits did not go untouched this time and he actually ate about half of it. He also hasn't touched pineapple in quite some time, but the last couple meals with a side of pineapple have resulted in an empty plate!! Overall, I'm thrilled with this DVD and completely excited that this simple concept is probably encouraging better eating habits. If not, the kids in it are adorable and Buddy loves watching them anyway! But I really think it's working, and I'll be letting him watch it a couple more times this week to see if I can get him to actually eat a piece of pepper!! :)
