I can't speak to the asparagus since that is one veggie I haven't fed to them yet but I would probably steam or litely cook in the microwave to soften it.

The sweet potatoes they did not like raw at all but love them cooked...same with carrots, they have to be cooked or they won't eat them.

my two boys absoutly love fresh raw carrots, their not a fan of the frozen ones. I'm introducing them to new fruits and veggies their pervious owners didnt keep them on a good diet. They seem to like the asparagus, atleast the tops, the bottom they sort of threw aside.

@ Amanda...did you feed the asparagus raw too ?
I wish mine like raw carrots...they like their yellow zuchinni squash cooked better than raw too.
I have done A LOT of experimenting to get them to eat their fruits and veggies to see what they like and don't like...I swear they are as bad a my boys were growing up.;)

I slice carrots with a potato peeler. Sometimes serve sweet potato same way. Does not mean they will eat it, some like it some don't. I am going to try offering a steamed version of some vegetables they don't much like now and see if that changes their mind.
