Copy-Kids Helping your kids eat more fruit and veggies

Do you have little ones that have issues eating fruits and veggies? I was asked by Copy-Kids to take a look at their DVD that gets kids ages 6 months to 5 years to eat better. My youngest eats really well but I still wanted to check it out.

When you first load it you get to choose which veggie or fruit you want to look at. From there they show different children eating that food item. The purpose is to get your child to copy the screen and eat. Our kids do what they see more than they do what we say so to me it is a great concept. This pic is from the video

Copy-kids Avocado

“The genesis for the project came when Cai Dixon noticed her young daughter was more willing to try new fruits and vegetables when she saw another child eating them. Bella liked to copy. Dixon wondered if the experience had to be live, or if a video of children eating fruits and vegetables would also work? “It did, and not just with Bella,” recalls Dixon. And so a concept was born: Find children who LOVE to eat fruits and veggies, film them eating them – and make the video available to parents. It’s that simple. Says Dixon, “I never would have expected my child to eat raw broccoli – but she demanded it as soon as she saw another child eating it on TV. Now it is one of her favorite vegetables.

Copy-Kids Carrots

Fallon watched with me. We started with her favorite avocado. She saw kids eating it and knew what it was so we had to get the avocado out for her to eat as well. She definitely watched the kids eat and tried to copy and do the same thing. We then moved onto carrots. Fallon only has 4 teeth so it is a little harder for her to eat carrots but she tries.

I loved that there are many veggies and fruits to choose from and that each chapter isn’t very long so that your little one will keep paying attention.

The chapters are:
  • Bell peppers           
  • Cucumbers
  • Carrots
  • Avocados
  • Tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Oranges
  • Bananas
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Blueberries
Copy-Kids even won an award from MACT which is a very prestigious award.  

I definitely recommend this movie to any parents that have fussy eaters at home.

  1. I like the idea that the on-screen children eat with "joy and delight." I think that is a great concept for kids like mine!

  2. that they see other kids trying something new.

  3. I entered the fear of intimacy and tago cure

  4. I love that they can see other kids trying new stuff and that can encourage them to try new stuff too.

  5. I like the wide variety of fruits and vegetables they try!

    I love that kids can see other kids eating healthy! Nothing like a good example by kids for other kids!

  7. I like that it presents brief chapters on different topics (veggies) to keep a child's interest

  8. This is a great idea, can't believe I've never seen this before. The video with the woman who does food therapy is a very interesting listen.

  9. I like that it shows other kids eating and enjoying the healthy foods.

  10. I love that it teaches children positive, healthy eating habits!

  11. I have a child who has major food aversion. I like that this would get him comfortable seeing new foods.

  12. My daughter will not eat anything new so this would be a blessing!

  13. So often, we put so much effort into getting our children to learn good habits, that we forget that they are children, over-think things, and make it all harder than it ever needed to be. The concept of children mimicking other children is so simple it is brilliant! My nephew needs this video. He has undergone pretty much non-stop cancer treatment for Neuroblastoma since last January, and will be in treatment until this March. He is now 2 1/2 years old. He is doing well, but has not eaten a decent meal for over a year now. The various treatments and their side effects basically left him without an appetite, or unable to keep food down, and he has been on parental nutrition almost the entire time. There have been occasions that he actually would try to eat, but never enough, he was very picky. Throughout this past year, his interaction with children has been next to zero,except for his twin nieces, who he worships and mimics. I know that if he saw this video he would want to do what the other kids do.

  15. I love that it's encouraging healthy eating early on.

  16. i love that it encourages healthy behavior which is almost directly opposite to much of the stuff that we watch

  17. I love that it encourages eating fruits and veggies..I always hated veggies as a kid if I had had this it might have been much different :)

  18. I love that it encourages eating and creativity. My kids are always playing at the table, but they seem to forget the eating part.

  19. sierra adkins this looks interesting

  20. I like that it makes trying new foods fun without being pushy
