Copy-Kids {Giveaway}–CLOSED

My kids are snack monsters. They eat breakfast and are asking for snacks no more than an hour later. We do the usual–crackers, apples, fruit snacks, granola bars, etc.–but I know they should be eating more fruits and especially vegetables in place of some of those carby foods. But, as most of you probably have experienced, getting kids to eat fruits and veggies can be tricky. That’s where Copy-Kids comes to the rescue!

Copy-Kids is a DVD that is focused on getting kids to eat fruits and vegetables. According to their website, “this product is a positive approach in the quest to get children eating healthy from the start.”  The idea behind the video is that kids will see other kids eating healthy foods and will want to copy them and eat the foods themselves. The film’s producer witnessed this phenomenon with her daughter and decided to try it on a large scale with other children through a video. I can tell you that it works!

The DVD features 12 7-minute segments, one for bell pepper, carrots, raspberries, broccoli, bananas, strawberries, tomato, cucumber, orange, avocado, apple, and blueberry. Several different adorable kids are filmed (unscripted) eating these foods and the result is hilarious! There’s one girl in the video who laughs hysterically throughout half the video, and both of my kids liked the “laughing girl.” They also liked trying to figure out what the kids were saying while they were talking and eating (not the best habit to emulate, but hey, if it gets them eating veggies…). At the end of the video, there is a discussion about eating healthy with Pediatrician Jay Gordon and some adorable outtakes with the kids. You can see a small clip of the video here:

Besides being hilarious, the video is very effective. My 4-year-old son wanted some veggies within the first 5 minutes of watching the movie. Both kids ate raw zucchini, which they’d only ever had cooked, but they wanted to eat it crunchy like the kids in the video. My two-year old was asking for avocado during the avocado section, but sadly, we didn’t have any, so she settled for raw broccoli instead (!).  Needless to say, we love the DVD and stand by its claim to get kids to eat healthier 100%!

I was joking with my husband the other day that it feels like most of my “modern” pregnancy and infant parenting choices are not so modern anymore.  I beg for an epidural when I walk through the door of L&D rather than birthing naturally, I nurse for only a couple of months before switching to formula and bottles, I prefer to have my babies in their own cribs without any blankets or crib bumpers rather than in bed with me, I use disposable diapers, and the list goes on.  The only thing that I’ve done with my boys that is semi-“modern” is make my own baby food.  I LOVED being able to throw fruits and vegetables into the Magic Bullet and come out with great, fresh baby food in just a couple of seconds.  One of my main problems, though, was transporting it and feeding them when we were out of the house.  Frankly, I think this is concern even with store-bought food — it’s just not easy to find a suitable high chair substitute and then to use a spoon with the little containers.

Meet my new favorite modern product, Little Green Pouch!!  The Little Green Pouch is a reusable food pouch that can be filled with healthy foods of your own choosing, that can save money, and that is a green alternative to disposable food pouches.

pouch 4 pack

I absolutely love these Little Green Pouches!  While their use for baby food is obvious, they are easily used for older kids as well.  I can’t even begin to count the number of times my four-year-old asks for sugar-filled Gogurt or another pricey applesauce pouch after he’s completely downed one in record time.  We’ve used them for our boys (22 months and 4 years old) in the past couple of days, and they work like a charm.

openA friend of mine mentioned that she’s freezed food in them so they can thaw out throughout the day and be ready for lunches or snacks on the go.  These would be perfect to keep food cold in lunch boxes at school or day care.

And, another one of my modern-but-not-modern choices is to use the dishwasher instead of washing by hand, so thank heavens that these Little Green Pouches are dishwasher-safe!
