food with friends {Nick jr} + giveaway

I love anything that will help my child get excited about food.  I know there is a childhood obesity crisis in our nation, but not in this house.  My daughter’s adventurous spirit has finally reached her eating habits and she will try most everything.  Try is the operative word there.  My general policy is that she try everything but she doesn’t have to  finish it by any means.  This policy has been great because my daughter’s palate has expanded; and she favors foods that I never would have imagined.  Where I get a little worried is the amount of food she actually consumes.  The girl just doesn’t seem to have much of an appetite, and never has.  Occasionally (I’m guessing growth spurts) she’ll actually chow down an adult-sized meal, but that’s not often.  Her doctor has simply told me to not worry as her growth is exceptional, she is full of energy, and toddlers don’t need as much food as we tend to think.  While it’s still a stress on me, I’m just happy that she loves vitamins, Carnation Instant Breakfast, and Cliff Z Bars.

Like many of you, food is a constant conversation.  Some of you have non-eaters, picky eaters, or over-eaters.  Getting our kids to not only try new/foreign foods but enjoy healthy options is so important.  Any methods and materials are welcome, and this DVD filled with our kids favorite characters is a great tool to add to your arsenal.  Food With Friends features Yo Gabba Gabba, Dora, Diego, The Wonder Pets, Blue’s Clues, and Ni Hao Kai-lan.  It also features my daughter’s current Nick favorite – Team Umizoomi in music video form.  The DVD is super cute and my daughter really took to it, memorizing some of the eating songs, which she then performs at dinner.  The DVD runs 148 minutes and contains 2 music videos from Team Umizoomi.  Purchase your own copy, which releases on May 17th, 2011, or… WIN IT!
