How to get a picky eater to eat

Every class has its own picky eater and mine is no exception.  Just by looking at something, he decides he doesn't like it.  He's especially this way with apples, so we had a happy accident today.  We're talking about apples this week and did lots of fun things like make a chart of the children's favorite colors of apple.  Today, the children got to observe some apples(red, green, and yellow) in a bowl on a table and draw what they saw.  Now keep in mind, the picky eater was on the other side of the room the entire time; he didn't so much as look at the apples.  Which is fine.  So as the kids were observing, I was telling the kids that they would get to taste them later.  Apparently word got around to this boy because at lunchtime, he sat excitedly with his napkin in front of him.  He didn't touch anything on his plate, but he ate all three apple pieces and asked for more!  I couldn't have been more proud.
