I know sometimes it can be super hard to get kids to eat their fruits and veggies.
I feel like I am constantly drilling into my oldest daughter that theres more to life than chicken nuggets and french fries.
Life is full of delicious and colorful fruits and veggies, and I want my daughter to experience that life, but sometimes its hard to get her motivated to eat healthier foods..
When I came across this product and was given the opportunity to review it, I jumped for joy because I knew that could quite possibly be the answer to get my daughter to fall in love with eating healthy foods and realize that eating healthy can be fun!
It is seriously a simple DVD chock full of cute little children eating (and enjoying!) fruits and veggies.
But what makes kids want to eat fruits and veggies when they watch this, you say?
Mimicry. They watch the children eating the fruits and vegetables in a fun way and they want to do it too!
So yesterday, I sat Big V and Little V in front of the TV and excitedly popped in the DVD for them to watch for the very first time. Big V was very excited to see what this DVD was all about. Theres nothing like getting a new present to try out!
I really think having the food in front of your child at the time they watch the DVD is key to fruit-and-veggie-eating success. Make sure you have a bowl of whatever fruit or veggie you are going to show them on the DVD. This is very important.
We started our healthy food adventure with carrots! As I sat the bowl of carrots in front of Big V, she immediately asked me where the ranch was so she could dip her carrots in them. This is the normal way that she eats her carrots, so I was not optimistic that she was going to eat the carrots without her beloved ranch dressing.
I told her that I was not going to give her ranch this time and started the carrots segment of the DVD. I chose carrots from the cute and easy-to-read DVD menu (shown above on my OLD TV screen- pardon the poor video quality).
Heres a photo glimpse of what she did next:
Once we had success with the carrots, I knew the apples and strawberries would go by with a breeze. Here are some pics of her enjoying her yummy fruits:
Heres what was left when she finished her video segments. She ate half the carrots without ranch, all of her apple and the entire bowl of strawberries. She even asked for more strawberries!! Just the night before at dinner, I had to beg her to finish the handful of strawberries I put on her plate.
The Copy-Kids video made it so much fun for her to enjoy eating healthy and that makes a momma proud! I cannot wait to get more fruits and veggies for her to try out. I am especially interested in seeing if she will try green peppers and blueberries. She will not even go near those and hopefully watching the video will change her mind!
I thoroughly enjoyed testing this product out on my oldest daughter (5 years old) and cannot wait until my youngest (5 months) is old enough to participate in this video.
