Looking for a way to get your children to eat fruits and vegetables? It’s not always easy to get our children to eat the fruits and vegetables that we would like them to eat, but there is a video called Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables that just might help.
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
COPY-KIDS MEDIA, an independent media company, presents its debut DVD. Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables is the first DVD in a series designed to encourage healthy habits in young children. This series is for children aged six months to 5 years.
Copy Kids Eat Fruit and Vegetables is divided into 12 chapters, each focusing on a different fruit or vegetable.
The yummy veggies and fruits include:
Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Carrots, Avocado, Tomatoes, Broccoli, Oranges, Bananas, Raspberries, Strawberries, Apples & Blueberries.
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.”
Director Malona Badelt was volunteering at an orphanage in Ghana when she was asked to direct Copy-Kids. She literally got off the plane in LA and drove to a test shoot that same day. She fell in love with the project and was able to coax the most amazing performances out of each cast member. It’s unscripted and quirky, with children behaving authentically, which gives it surprise and comedy. “I would never have gotten such amazing performances if the video had been scripted,” says Badelt. “Each child brought his or her own piece of magic to the project.”
For parents, the DVD also features an interview with renowned pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon, MD, FAAP, author of Good Food Today, Great Kids Tomorrow. He talks about childhood overweight and obesity, suggests ways that parents can get their children to make healthier food choices, and explains why Copy-Kids is such a powerful idea, noting “That’s just the way kids are, they love to copy other kids.”
This innovative DVD is engaging & enchanting – kids want to play it over and over as they learn to love these healthy foods. Dixon adds, “Just be sure you have these foods at home – because your kids are going to want to eat what the Copy-Kids are eating.”
