Copy Kids {Review & GIVEAWAY}

I recently got the chance to do a review for Copy Kids. They sent me their DVD and told me to write a review about it.

Feeding a toddler fruits and vegetables can be tricky. Half the time all of Sophia's food ends up on the floor for the dog to eat or she's only wanting to eat fruity pebbles or fruit snacks. 

As parents we want our toddlers to eat enough and we want their food to be nutritious, not junk. So of course I was pretty excited to review this product to see if it'd help with Sophia wanting to eat her fruits and vegetables. 

Copy Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables started out when a mother noticed that her daughter was more willing to try new fruits and vegetables when she saw another child eating them. 

The DVD features children eating fruits and vegetables. It's produced for children aged 6 months to 5 years and is divided into 12 chapters, each focusing on a different fruit or vegetable. The veggies and fruits include: Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Carrots, Avocado, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Oranges, Bananas, Raspberries, Strawberries, Apples & Blueberries. 

We decided to try Avocado, Strawberry and Tomatoes. Sophia has tasted all of these but she usually just plays with them instead. 

Sophia was not too happy when I brought her inside from playing. I started the DVD before I even put her in the high chair and just the intro got her attention and she smiled and started clapping. I already liked the DVD as soon as she did that.

I put her in the high chair with the avocado. She did not take her eye off the TV, only to scoop her spoon in the avocado and she actually ate it, with her eyes glued to the TV.

We tried strawberries and tomatoes too. Sophia has always liked strawberries but she's only ate a few. She finished the two I had on her tray and as soon as she was done she was asking for more. I think she was only asking for more because the children on the screen were still eating.

She has never wanted to try tomatoes before. I put them on her tray with the children eating tomatoes on the TV. She tried them BUT she didn't like the taste. She immediately spit it out, but at least she tried it, right?

The DVD was very entertaining for both Sophia and I. It really had her attention and she could not keep her eyes off the TV the WHOLE time. I think they did a great job on using children who enjoyed eating their fruits and veggies. Whatever keeps Sophia entertained while eating healthy is something we're going to like and use in our house.  And for other parents reading this, I recommend this DVD. It's a creative and entertaining way of encouraging healthy eating for your children. 

{Not gonna lie, we even kept the DVD playing after she was done eating.}

Check out their video.

Copy Kids have won two children's excellence awards. One from Dr. Toy and the other from MCAT. They are also approved by the USDA and added to their Education and Training Materials Database for pre-school nutrition.

The DVD also features an interview with pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon, MD, FAAP. Gordon is the author of Good Food Today, Great Kids Tomorrow. He talks about childhood obesity and how parents can prevent this by choosing healthier foods for their children. He also explains why Copy-Kids is such a powerful idea.
