A typical snack here in the summer is a plate of snap peas, green beans, carrots, and cucumbers. It all gets eaten.

I have parents fill out a "getting to know you" form prior to their child's enrollment. Every single parent has written on that sheet that their child will not eat veggies. Within 1 month of enrollment all of those kids (with the exception of one) happily eat veggies now.
