I've heard that kids are more enthusiastic about eating foods they've picked themselves. DS picked 2 huge squash and a godzilla-size zucchini in dgm's garden last night, however, and he didn't like any of it.
I agree, very fresh, raw peas are delightful. So is raw corn, although too much of that will definitely cause tummy aches.
