This week I reviewed the CopyKids Eat Fruits and Vegetables DVD, and my daughter watched other children eating tomatoes. This really had an effect on her. We made bean burritos for lunch this week, and while I was cutting up tomatoes, my Princess asked to eat a piece plain!
Now, she loves pico de gallo salsa that is chock full of tomatoes. She also likes tomatoes on her Subway sandwiches and veggie burgers, but she has never eaten a tomato alone.
I gave her a small piece and she LOVED it! In fact, while I was heating up beans she kept on eating pieces. Before watching this video I had to argue with her to put 4 small pieces in her burrito 2 weeks ago! Now she wants to finish my tomato pile.
Let’s just say I was super impressed.
We love to eat healthy with lots of fruits and vegetables in our diet already, so I was glad to read a blog post this week about child hood obesity. Celebrate Woman Today, is a great blog, and in one post she speaks about plant based foods lowering the risk of childhood obesity.
So to quote her post:
Add more vegetables and fruit into your kid’s daily diet!
