If I want kids to eat veggies for snack and worry they won't eat them, I do the opposite of what you're saying: I make sure to offer no easy alternative like crackers. Given a choice, kids'll always choose crackers or bread. So I offer several choices of veggies instead. If they're hungry enough, they'll eat them. A typical snack here in the summer is a plate of snap peas, green beans, carrots, and cucumbers. It all gets eaten.
