Copy Kids DVD Review and Giveaway! Get your kids to eat their fruit and veggies!
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Some day's I feel like I have the pickiest eater so I knew that if this worked I would be PRAISING!! :) This mama is praising and thrilled with the results so far. :) Before I share all the fun details let me tell you what Copy Kids is.
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 showcases the following fruits and veggies: apples, avocado, banana, bell peppers, blueberries, broccoli, carrots, cucumber, orange, raspberries, strawberries, and Tomato's.
Our results: I started with the broccoli section as I was excited to see if my daughter would eat the veggies. Most of the time she usually will only eat carrots and spinach. I am so happy to announce that she ATE and ATE and then ATE some more. We replayed the broccoli video 7 TIMES!!! Yes, 7 Times!!! My daughter calls the video her "food game."
Day 2 we used bananas and strawberries and the results were awesome for this too. I knew both my kids love those two fruits but they had fun watching the video and eating there healthy snack!
Day 3 we tried red, green, orange, and yellow peppers. This is a veggie that my daughter would never even try and she ate a plate full! :) I did change it up a bit since I cut the peppers in to bite size pieces but on the video the kids were eating the peppers like apples and I thought how neat, next time I will not cut them and see how she does. My 11 month old tried and ate all of the fruits and veggies too. :) YAY! This is a must have DVD for all parents who struggle with picky eaters. :)
The next challenge I attempted was to test our results. This week she ate peppers and broccoli so I wanted to know what would happen if I served her them in a meal. Tonight I made stir fry and guess who ate her veggies... yep my daughter! OH YEAH! This mom is so thankful! :)
I absolutely loved how easy the menu was to pick what fruit you wanted to do. :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go! Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM! I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you. I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family. I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night. Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun. With that said, my family did have a good time. We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other. Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball. There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering. My 11 year old had the most fun! He was standing up and
