Back in March, I entered a giveaway at another blog, and I won a copy of a DVD called “Copy Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables” which is designed to encourage kids to eat healthy fruits and veggies by showing them segments of other kids enjoying these things. I wrote about our first, and very successful, experience with the product here.
Since then, we have enjoyed the DVD so much, that I contacted the company and asked if they would be kind enough to help me pass on my enjoyment with my own giveaway of their product. They said they would be delighted! Here is a summary of the DVD from the Copy Kids website:
“A joy-filled video and an innovative tool for parents who want to get children to enjoy eating fruits and vegetables.
Copy-Kids is a media company producing video that encourages positive habits in young children, by watching and copying other kids. Copy-Kids unique content — DVD, online and TV — helps parents get their children hooked on healthy and positive habits...
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 with joy and delight. It’s a simple but revolutionary tool for parents who want their kids to develop a life-long habit of healthy eating. The DVD includes an on-camera discussion about healthy eating with renowned pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon, plus a section of delightful outtakes.”
In order to prepare for today’s giveaway, I decided to photograph Simon watching the DVD again. This time, I gave him almost an entire Bell Pepper, of which I has used only a little for a recipe. I put the pepper out on a plate, popped on the DVD segment dedicated to bell peppers, and sat back to watch. I avoided interfering or suggesting in any way that Simon eat the pepper. In fact, the only time I spoke was when he asked a few questions about the “babies” on the TV. As a parent, I enjoy watching the quirky behaviors of the kids, and the funny ways they move and talk, just as much as Simon does.
As he watched, Simon was mesmerized. He stared at the kids munching away for a few moments, and then slowly, absentmindedly, picked up the pepper. After a few more moments, he started licking it…and then took a great big bite. He smiled, pointed at one of the kids on the TV, and with his mouth full of pepper told me: “Baby laughing.”. We watched several more segments (at his request), and throughout the whole time he continued munching away on his veggie snack. Even after all this time, the effect of the video has not lost its charm for him.
