When I was asked to review Copy-Kids with Liam I was absolutely thrilled!! There couldn't have been a more perfect fit and better time in both our lives. As you guys know I'm still on my weight loss journey and of course along with my healthier eating comes the conscious effort and choice to feed Liam better and higher quality food. Since he began eating solids, Liam has almost loved everything and I do mean everything food related.
Now that he is in the midst of toddlerhood, I worry a little more about his tendency to stick to the same foods. My concern is less about getting him to eat fruits and veggies than about getting him to try new ones. Enter Copy-Kids. This DVD is built on the premise that #1 kids need to eat healthier and we as parents need to make better food choices for our kids and ourselves, #2 through seeing other children eat healthy and delicious foods, our kids will want to partake as well.
Due to my crazy schedule, Liam and I watched this video over the course of a couple of nights. The video is broken down into twelve segments of about 6-8 minutes each featuring some of the cutest kids chowing down on vegetables and sometimes talking while doing so :). I let Liam pick out first what he wanted to watch. He (of course) was most excited to see his favorites: bananas, strawberries, apples and avocado.
I was excited to get him watching and thinking about the other foods, so then we watched the segments on the rest of the fruits and veggies the next night. I had seen other reviews and of course visited the Copy-Kids site myself and the #1 comment that kept showing up is how kids want to partake in the same fruits and veggies as the kids almost immediately after. So true for Liam! I had to go buy avocado, carrots, peppers and blueberries for him to try. I normally keep bananas and strawberries stocked. I am overjoyed with Liam's new found interest in a wider variety of healthy choices. :)
Overall, I totally recommend this video. You'll get to enjoy watching your child explore new foods, grocery shopping may even become a fun outing instead of a hassle(at least for me lol) and if you're on a mission to a healthier lifestyle like us, then Copy-Kids will help to get you one step closer in that direction.
