Mom of two Mischievous Monkeys: COPY KIDS REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

Monday, August 6, 2012


We never really had issues in getting our son to eat fruits and veggies,actually he was the ONLY child who when we went to parties would be standing at the fruit and veggie tray rather than munching on the chips and treats like the other children. While things have changed a bit over the years since then, he is still a pretty good eater of various types of foods. Recently he even asked to try mushrooms and discovered that he now likes to eat them. When I served this zucchini, mushroom and tomato pizza he ate it (and only showed distaste at having even zucchini after learning it was zucchini). 

Now our daughter is a bit of a different story, she goes through more phases where it times it seems the only fruit or veggie she would eat was grapes, apples or cucumber and turn up her nose if you tried to offer something else. After watching the Copy Kids DVD we received I managed to snap a picture as proof of the first time I have been able to get her to eat raw broccoli. Normally I steam it, top with cheese and she picks off  the cheese, leaving behind the broccoli. Given the at the Copy Kids DVD features children not only eating but talking about various fruits and veggies I was hopeful that this would have some impact on her eating habits..

And even if I have to put up with her looking like this while eating apples it is definitely worth it. The other day she even snuck a piece of broccoli off my plate and said "Yummm!"

I think overall watching this DVD had some impact on her and hopefully watching it in the future will encourage her to eat more variety of veggies and fruits.

 She loved pointing out the different items that the children were eating and showing that those items were also on her plate. And her brother even snuck into the room and watched a bit, likely for the same reason that I did, as the kids featured were pretty funny at times with their antics, especially the included outtakes from taping. 

The DVD features 12 x 7 minute chapters, one for each of twelve fruits & veggies. Each chapter features several adorable and entertaining children aged 9 months to 4 years, eating various fruits and veggies. The DVD includes an on-camera discussion about healtheating with renowned pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon.

  1. My 4 YO basically will eat raw spinach and cooked broccoli. I'd like him to eat carrots :) The younger one will eat most anything! :)

  2. I would love for mine to start eating the fresh veggies that come out of our garden - squash, cucumber and okra! Anne Sweden at Zephyr Hill

  3. Any vegetable! My kid will eat many kinds of fruits but otherwise his food choices just get narrower and narrower as time passes -- so frustrating!

  4. Mine love their veggies, but I'd like them to eat a cherry tomato. I have lots of those in my garden.
