Mommy MD Guides-Recommended Product Review: Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables
by Mommy MD Guides cofounder Jennifer Bright Reich
The best part of my job is the fascinating people I get to meet and work with. The second best part of my job is discovering new and exciting products—and sharing them with our readers, friends, and family. I’m pleased to have that opportunity today! I heard about a new DVD that encourages kids to eat fruits and vegetables, Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables–and I was eager to give it a try!
Any movie starring babies and kids captivates my sons. They were huge Baby Einsteins fans. We watched those DVDs over and over and over. My sons also love to watch home movies of themselves and their cousins. So I wasn’t surprised that they enjoyed watching Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables, which features adorable kids enjoying eating fresh foods such as sweet peppers, broccoli, avocados, strawberries, and carrots. My five-year-old son especially loved it. As we were watching, he asked, “Is there a strawberry section?” Each fruit and veggie has its own chapter on the menu, so it was easy for me to oblige and put on the strawberries chapter. As we watched it, my son said, “I should eat strawberries while we watch the strawberry section!” Never mind we just ate supper! This made me very happy because fruit is not a common between-meals request here!
When we were watching the cucumbers chapter, my son asked, “What’s that?” I’ll be buying some cucumbers at the grocery store next time so he can give them a try! Maybe they’ll be a new favorite!
Don’t miss the Outtakes, Some of them made me laugh out loud! Also, the extras section by Jay Gordon, MD, is very valuable. I love how he said, “The standard American diet is best abbreviated “SAD.” Sad, but true.
After we finished watching the DVD, I asked how my son he liked the video and he said, “I give it a 10,000!” (That’s on a scale of 1 to 10, I’m thinking.) I also found the kids in the DVD to be absolutely adorable. I appreciated that they show their names and ages onscreen because it helps to put their reactions to the fruits and vegetables into context.
I was so pleased to read that Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables is the first of the series. I look forward to the next DVD! Copy-Kids gives parents a valuable tool in their quest to get the kids to eat healthy. The kids are so engaging and happy eating their fruits and vegetables that it inspired me to eat better too!
