So I was recently given a copy of Copy Kids: Eat fruits and vegetables. I was so excited to review this DVD. I don't know about you but Ravebaby has become a little bit of a picky eater. For the most part we eat pretty healthy. DH and I are always trying to model good eating and with the wheat free aspect of our life, we really have to work hard now to lay a good foundation for healthy eating.
The concept of the DVD is pretty simple; it features children eating fruits and veggies! Why didn't I think of it? Children are natural copy cats. (Again the whole reason parents need to model good eating habits.) So I put the DVD in, selected Carrots and I waited to see Ravebaby's reaction. She kept her eyes on the screen the whole time except when she looked at me and demanded a carrot. Well Ravebaby likes carrots so I thought it was a fluke. We watched Broccoli. Again same thing, "broccoli, please.". Okay Ravebaby use to eat broccoli so again another fluke. The big test Tomatoes! DH and I hate raw fresh tomatoes. We never eat them and never buy them. Would Ravebaby eat a veggie that she knows we hate just because she sees random kids eating them? Answer: Yes! Well she would have if I had had any on hand.
So this leads me to my one critique of this DVD, it needs to comes with a warning to make sure you have the veggie and/or fruit on hand ready to eat! Seriously, be prepared! I had to run to the fridge and get a carrot. The only broccoli I had in the house was frozen; that didn't go over well since the kids on the DVD were eating fresh bright green broccoli. I didn't have any tomatoes in the house as all; Ravebaby was not pleased! The length of the sections is perfect; each sections is about 6-8 minutes long. Long enough to get the kids interested, eating, and then over before they can get bored! Love this DVD!
So Ravebaby and I highly recommend this DVD. Just be for warned, your child is going to want to eat their fruits and veggies so make sure you have them ready to eat! She is still asking for carrots and she wants to watch more of the DVD. I foresee a trip to the veggie section of the grocery store.
