Review:
My kids are six and thirteen and do eat their fruits and veggies, but it was really difficult to get them to start. I have my 2 year old niece Lucy, and my 3 year old nephew Ethan that I watch three days a week and those two never want to eat anything healthy. As soon as they come through the door, its straight to the cabinet in the kitchen where they both point and say "cookie".
So a few days ago, I sat Lucy and Ethan down to watch Copy-Kids to see if it would have any influence on them. Right away they were both excited to see other kids their ages having so much fun. So I asked them if they would like to try, and they both started to jump saying "me try, me try". So I gave them each a bowl with some strawberries and bananas in it, and they ate it! No getting frustrated, no tricking them, just them eating and liking it.
When my brother-in-law came to pick them up that evening, I told him what happened, and he didn't believe me. He thought I must have done something like trick them or tell them they couldn't "do something" until they ate it. So he took the kids home and I was curious as to how they would be after the fact. But when he brought them over yesterday, he said "Ethan and Lucy eat fruit now!" I was excited to see that not only did it work while they watched it, but after they went home, it stuck with them.
Yesterday we had fun with carrots and tomatos, which they loved. And this morning when they got here, they didn't go over to the cookie cabinet. They went straight to the fruit bowl and said "Nana". I wish this DVD was around when my kids were little!
