The DVD is the simplest of ideas...so simple, I'm kinda kicking myself for not thinking of it myself! ; ) It shows kids eating and enjoying a fruit or vegetable. They talk about it, eat, and laugh, it's really cute.
Here's a glimpse:
I stocked up on some of the fruits and veggies featured in the DVD and prepared myself more for this review than the kids.
When I picked it up to start it...O was totally against it. "I'm not going to eat this stuff, lets play a game." I explained to him that we were asked to review it, and I just needed him to sit and watch the movie with his sister, and he agreed.
I started with carrots, something that O eats already, but Brynnleigh will not. We had just finished lunch and O kept telling me he wasn't hungry, so he was just going to watch...
Now might be a good time to explain how stubborn Brynnleigh is, especially with eating. She doesn't "try" foods, she either eats it, or throws it. So the fact that she's even picking an unknown food up is amazing! And she may have confused the broccoli with an ice cream cone, but I'm not complaining! ; )
O didn't try it, but he loved watching the video, and I think with some more time watching he may cave. Don't worry, Brynnleigh (you know...the child that won't eat ANYTHING), took his broccoli!).
Next up...apples. B LOVES apples and O used to eat them, but has recently stopped. No worries....he ate his plus B's...because she refused to drop the broccoli!
We finished up with a green pepper. I didn't expect the kids to eat it since neither my husband or I like them, but both were super excited, so...
Owen has already asked me to watch the DVD again...and wants me to go to the store and get the other items on the DVD so he can try those too! Both kids were laughing and engrossed in watching the other kids eat.
We did all this yesterday afternoon, and this evening, Brynnleigh ate a regular dinner, meat, veggie, bread....that has NEVER happened. I'm pretty sure that Copy-Kids helped her open herself up to at least try something. I have already ranted and raved to my friends and they are excited to check out the DVD themselves!
