Copy-Kids has an adorable video titled Copy-Kids eat fruits and vegetables. I am a Mommy to 3 children so I was very eager to try this out. The video concept is that children learn best from watching other children. The main focus is to get your children to eat or at least try a variety of fruits and vegetables. They will never know if they like something unless they try it. Right?! When they watch other children eating something and enjoying it, they want to try it too!
I decided to let my youngest two children ages 5 & 7 watch the DVD. I also invited my neighbor’s 4 year old little girl to join us. I was curious to see how they would all react together.
Be sure to have the foods on hand and ready to serve before you begin the video. Luckily I had the plates prepared sitting on the kitchen table when the video started! The first part showed children eating bell pepper. My son immediately asked, “Where can we get some of that to try, Mommy?” I was a little surprised considering he has seen that vegetable around the house and never paid much attention to it. I brought the plates into the living room and told them to watch each part and once a vegetable or fruit was introduced they could try it if they wanted to but they didn’t have to.
Of course the children were very eager to try it all because the video makes it fun! They found that there were some veggies that they liked and some that they didn’t like. However, they wanted to try them all for themselves to see. I noticed my daughter try something and say she didn’t really care for it, but then a minute or two later while still watching, she would try it again.
It was a lot of fun and they really enjoyed the experience.
The DVD is divided into 12 chapters, each part is approximately 6-8 minutes long. Your child can try bell pepper, carrots, raspberries, broccoli, bananas, strawberries, tomatoes, cucumber, oranges, avocado, apples, and blueberries. Copy-Kids eat fruits and vegetables offers a variety of foods to introduce to your children in a positive way. The age recommendation for the video is 6 months to 5 years old. The DVD also features an interview with pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon, author of Good Food Today, Great Kids Tomorrow. He speaks about childhood obesity and suggests ways that parents can get their children to make healthier food choices.
