Vegetables my fussy boys

so, after 6 months with my boys, and having tried all the suggestions i've read here about veggies, i just have to accept my boys lack of taste for most veggies :sorry: . i followed the sample menu that was shared by lypigs (i think) to start, and then slowly but surely crossed off veggies that went uneaten. here's my question: i am supplementing with oxbow vitamin C to make sure they get the C they need, but how important is variety? i know they're supposed to get 1 cup per day (right?), but is it ok if it's only made up of a couple of veggies/fruits that i rotate throughout the week?
and, just to add: i am so very very grateful for all the information and suggestions shared by everyone here on this site. just a few months ago, what i knew about guinea pigs could fit in their originally small store bought cage :eek:. now, thanks to all your help, i even impressed my vet with what i knew about guinea pig "husbandry". the best part is that i have 3 boys who are happy, safe, and healthy. who could ask for more? :tearsofjo
 
nice to know we're not alone. i actually use the oxbow tablets. when i get home from work, i shake the bottle, and they wheek like crazy! they love the tablets and think it's a treat!
