Kids and Vegetables
It’s no secret that my kids are picky eaters. Probably the biggest struggle is to get them to consistently eat fruit and vegetables. So I’m always on the look out for creative ways to get the kids to eat vegetables. Here are a few ways I’ve tried that have helped…
How Do You Get Kids To Eat Vegetables?
1. Hide Veggies in a Taco
2. Use a Dinner Time Sticker Reward Chart
3. Use a Food Taste Testing Chart
4. Try these 25 Tips for Picky Eaters
5. Watch the Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables DVD
Honestly, when I received the Copy-Kids DVD in the mail I was skeptical. What is Copy-Kids?
“Copy-Kids is a […] 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.
Produced for children aged 6 months to 5 years, Copy-Kids innovative video is fun and compelling for both children and parents.
Each chapter [, one for each of 12 fruits and vegetables,] 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.”
It seemed like too simple of a concept, especially for my five year old picky eater. But when I put the movie on and placed the large plate of colorful, raw veggies in front of my two kids, I was amazed at what happened.
They ate veggies, watched the movie, laughed and played, and ate some more! They tried vegetables they’d never even tried before. And were surprised when they loved them!
Now they ask for their vegetable movie all the time. I have to make sure to have lot of fresh fruit and vegetables on hand for when they want to watch it. It’s amazing!
I was truly amazed and excited over how great the Copy-Kids DVD worked. I think it’s well worth the reasonable price tag. But you can win a FREE copy by entering below…

I have a son that will eat lettuce and not any other veggie.
Thank you for linking up to Mommy Solutions! I'm featuring your post right now on my facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151026796048602&set=a.375937893601.155744.188484568601&type=1
Thanks for sharing your mommy solutions with us! Crystal
My daughter is a pretty good eater. She loves fruit. There isn't much she doesn't like. I hope she keeps eating healthy. Me wanting her to eat healthy has made me eat way healthier than before because I want to set a good example
My son used to like veggies, now that he is two he doesn't touch them anymore. I could use some help in this department.
My son loves most fruits, but won't touch raw veggies. He likes them steamed, but it would be nice to just grab something out of the fridge and hand it to him instead of having to pre-cook it. I hope I win!

That's fantastic! My kids are 2 1/2 and they won't eat any veggies unless I hide them.
It's always difficult to make them eat vegetables. These vegetables are very good for health.
Thanks Krissy for these nice ideas !!
My oldest loves food, vegetables or not. It's no big deal to get her to eat anything. My youngest hates everything that isn't artificially orange colored. It's hard to get her to eat.
It would be AMAZING if that DVD worked for my picky kid! He used to LOVE broccoli and other things that he will no longer eat because of how they look.
My youngest thinks everything is “yucky”. This DVD sounds like it could turn him around!

Really need that video! My little guy is very picky and I want him to love veggies!
Hoping to win this video to see if it might help with my 9 and 6 year old boys, who won't touch veggies. Urgh…
My toddler won't hardly eat any fruits or veggies. She's just now starting to eat grapes and sometimes blueberries. She will eat raw carrots every now and again, but no other veggies. I appreciate any help!
I have nine grandchildren and want them to have healthy eating habits. I'm glad to see your suggestions.
They are young enough to get them use to eating fruits and vegetables and establish a lifelong habit. The copycat DVD seems like a great approach.
my daughter is so picky! there are very few things that she will eat! she will eat peas and occasionally raw carrots, but that's it! i really need this video!
